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 – Generation I
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 designated schools aimed at reducing violence by combining mentoring, educational, employment and other prevention strategies to change the school climate and improve academic performance. To learn from this effort, ETA contracted Social Policy Research Associates, Inc. to conduct an implementation evaluation using interviews, site visits and quantitative data. This report focuses on the efforts of nine schools that were designated as “persistently dangerous” under the Unsafe School Choice Option of the No Child Left Behind legislation. The report presents findings from the grant projects during the 2009-2010 school year. The report summarizes key first year accomplishments; notes common challenges that slowed the pace of implementation; and highlights the implications of the core findings.
