There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Title :
  Early Implementation Report: Mentoring, Educational, and Employment Strategies (MEES) to Improve Academic, Social and Career Pathway Outcomes in Persistently Dangerous Schools – Planning Report
Release Date :
  June 30, 2011
Abstract :
  Over a three year period from 2007 to 2009, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) provided funding to nine schools designated as “persistently dangerous” under the Unsafe School Choice Option of the No Child Left Behind legislation. The grants aimed to reduce violence and improve academic performance by combining mentoring, educational, employment and other prevention strategies to change the school climate. The grants were awarded for a period of 38 months, including a 14-month planning period. This planning report focuses on the process by which grantees organized their schools and communities to plan and design school-wide reform. The report presents findings on progress made in mobilizing core stakeholders, summarizes planning and implementation accomplishments, and identifies challenges related to learning environments that slowed the paces of both planning and implementation.
