AIR DATE: February 7, 2012

There are hundreds of high school students in Nevada who are no longer enrolled in school.  They've just stopped showing up.  The district, already battling the image of one of the worst districts in the nation for dropouts, is trying to win those kids back with a program called "Reclaiming the Future."  We find out if the program has been successful so far.
