About Ombudsman Educational Services
Many public school districts partner with Ombudsman to provide alternative programs for dropout prevention and credit recovery. Ombudsman students are at risk of not graduating because they may have missed too many school days, lack credits, or have academic challenges or adult responsibilities that keep them from being successful in a traditional school environment.
Nationwide, 84 percent of Ombudsman students graduate, earn necessary credits or return to their district school closer to or at grade level. This number is significant, as many Ombudsman students are considered at risk when entering the program. Learn more about Ombudsman.
