Door knocking campaign gets 26 students back to school

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Waterloo Community School District says a door knocking campaign aimed at getting dropouts back in school led to 26 students re-enrolling.

Teams of trained volunteers went to 135 homes on Sept. 5 to talk to students who dropped out of school.

The district says the volunteers talked to students or family members in 50 of those homes.

As a result of those visits, 26 have re-enrolled in school.

Support will be in place to help those students be successful in their return to the classroom.
