At-Risk Students   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees 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.

(cf. 6011 - Academic Standards)

(cf. 6146.1 - High School Graduation Requirements)

(cf. 6146.5 - Elementary/Middle School Graduation Requirements)

The Superintendent or designee shall develop strategies to address the needs of district students at risk. District assessments and ongoing classroom assessments 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 research-based instructional and intervention strategies as needed to meet the instructional needs of individual students. Referrals of at-risk students may be made by teachers, staff or parents to the school Student Study Team. The Superintendent or designee shall further ensure that a system of progress monitoring shall be in effect for at-risk students. This system will include Student Study Team meetings of staff and parents or guardians to review instructional or other support, and to monitor and ensure student progress.
