A 4-year controlled follow-up study was performed to evaluate the secondary school outcome of three cohorts of multisuspended students who participated in a junior high school behavioral intervention program. After departing from the program, the students entered high school in significantly greater numbers than did the control population. Furthermore, conduct and attendance data from the 10th grade favored program youth. Nonetheless, the program and the control groups had a comparable rate of 11th and 12th grade enrollment and a similar rate of high school graduation.
