All of this adds up to a lot more learning for students who previously would have had little or no access to education due to circumstances such as long-term suspension, home hospital placement, or extreme truancy. The goal is for most students to return to their home school or an appropriate alternative setting, and the majority do. Most impressively, HIPP students earn two to three credits on average during their interim placement, whereas similar students prior to HIPP earned little or no credit.

Great job to Bruce Dearborn, who in addition to heading the program and working with students and families is the Pied Piper of HIPP!
