Truancy Intervention Program: Uses community leaders in the schools to deal with attendance problems and serve as family advocates. Cost: The district's 517,000 program share is being picked up by Mahoning County Job & amp; Family Services this year.

Mentoring from the Heart: An in-school program providing adult mentors for children in grades 4-8. Cost: 172,000 from a federal grant.

Alternative to Expulsion, Regular and Special Education: Sets up special single classrooms with a maximum of 15 pupils each to continue instruction for children who otherwise would be expelled for various reasons. Cost: 2.7 million from the general fund.

Capturing Kids Hearts: A staff training program provided to every district employee to improve leadership skills and focus on reaching children. Cost: 650,000 from a federal grant.

Increase the Peace: A school, city, civic and religious coalition of groups formed to answer street violence in 2005. It continues to be active in promoting safe schools and safe communities. No direct cost to the district.
