High school dropouts in Rochester won’t easily slip out of school under a new initiative called We Want You Back.

Superintendent Michael Munoz told the Rochester Post-Bulletin that 200 to 300 students who started school in the district last year didn’t finish. On Saturday, 115 volunteers fanned out to knock on those students' doors and try to get them registered for classes, the newspaper reports. 

No word yet on how many they were successful in luring back to school.
