Abstract

A single system design study examined the impact of a Rites of Passage program upon truant, black middle school students. SETCLAE, a model Rites of Passage program was utilized as the intervention. Data were solicited via facilitator’s process notes, questionnaires, and pre and post tests. Baseline and intervention data were compared resulting in a pragmatic reduction of most subjects truancy rate. It was theorized that truant students exposed to their African-American heritage within the school system would result in the students eagerly attending school. The outcome of the program indicated the subjects improved on school attendance and arriving on time.
