On the heels of a state report showing one in four high school students are dropping out, the Vallejo Unified School District is taking immediate action.

The district says it will expand its tutorial program to make sure that students get the help they need.

It will also implement a new program to increase parental involvement and end social promotion, which allows middle school students to advance to high school without being academically prepared.
