At-Risk Students


The Governing Board recognizes that personal, social, health and economic conditions of children and families sometimes place students at greater risk of school failure. The Board believes, however, that each student can succeed in meeting District academic standards with an appropriate educational program and support services.

The Superintendent or designee shall develop strategies to address the needs of District students at risk of school failure. District assessments and ongoing classroom evaluations shall be used to identify students performing below grade level or at risk of failing to meet District standards. The primary emphasis shall be on prevention and early intervention. The Superintendent or designee also shall ensure that school staff is prepared to implement intervention strategies as needed or to make appropriate referrals.
