Dropout Prevention and Recovery Program (DPRP) Waiver

Ohio law now allows school districts, community schools and chartered nonpublic schools to apply for a Dropout Prevention and Recovery Program (DPRP) waiver that will allow Local Education Agencies (LEA) to establish a program to allow students to graduate from high school without meeting the new Ohio Core Graduation requirements.

Senate Bill 311, enacted in 2007 by the 126th General Assembly, allows at-risk students to complete a competency-based instructional program rather than the Ohio core curriculum prescribed by law [Ohio Revised Code, Section 3313.603 (C)].

Through Sept. 27, 2013, school districts, community schools and chartered nonpublic schools may apply for a DPRP waiver by completing the Ohio Core DPRP waiver application and submitting it, along with the required additional information and supporting documents, to the Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Educational Reform (OER) at dprp@education.ohio.gov. Applications may be submitted via email only and submissions will not be considered to be complete until OER receives all required documents.
