At Risk Students are young people, male or female, who have a higher than normal probability of making bad choices that will profoundly affect their future. Some of the factors involved in the lives of these students are as follows: Single parent home, at or below the poverty line, higher crime neighborhoods, unemployment, poor performance at school, emotionally or physically abused, few support systems, neglect or abandonment, and sometimes negative contact with police agencies. One of the drawbacks to the term "at risk students" is that there is no qualifier as to "how at risk" they are. Because of this, the research can be ambiguous. Different methods that work in certain research settings may be most effective for students who ONLY have financial uncertainties, whereas other methods may be most effective for "at risk students" with familial uncertainties. North Central Regionals Educational Laboratory notes "The question of what it means to be "at risk" is controversial. When children do not succeed in school, educators and others disagree about who or what is to blame. Because learning is a process that takes place both inside and outside school, an ecological approach offers a working description of the term at risk. In this view, inadequacies in any arena of lifethe school, the home, or the communitycan contribute to academic failure when not compensated for in another arena. Why is there a need to focus especially on at-risk students? The personal, economic, and social costs of academic underachievement are high and growing. Each year, increasing numbers of students enter school with circumstances in their lives that schools are ill prepared to accommodate. Yet from this academically and culturally diverse population must come the next generation of scientists, engineers, and other skilled professionals."

Nationally over 25 percent of the potential high school graduates drop out before graduation. In some major cities the rate is 40 percent. Higher standards in the public schools have affected millions of minority and disadvantaged students who are "at-risk." Educational reform has changed the rules before the system has had a chance to accommodate to an increasing number of students who are dropping out and becoming a burden to society. The identification of at-risk students and the development of programs to prevent their failure are necessary components of ducational reform. WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF AT-RISK STUDENTS? At-risk students are students who are not experiencing success in school and are potential dropouts. They are usually low academic achievers who exhibit low self-esteem. Disproportionate numbers of them are males and minorities. Generally they are from low socioeconomic status families. Students who are both low income and minority status are at higher risk; their parents may have low educational backgrounds and may not have high educational expectations for their children. At-risk students tend not to participate in school activities and have a minimal identification with the school. They have disciplinary and truancy problems that lead to credit problems. They exhibit impulsive behavior and their peer relationships are problematic. Family problems, drug addictions, pregnancies, and other problems prevent them from participating successfully in school. As they experience failure and fall behind their peers, school becomes a negative environment that reinforces their low self-esteem.

Policymakers Ways to Use this Product As a resource for determining which in-class strategies can be used to assist low-achieving students. Key Ideas In the summer and fall of 2002, McREL conducted a synthesis of recent research on strategies to assist students who are low achieving or at risk of failure. From this synthesis of research, McREL identified six general classroom strategies that can be used to assist low-achieving students. These strategies are reviewed in a condensed form in this journal. How to Get this Product Download the PDF file

In 1994, the Office of Academic Advising at Virginia Commonwealth University instituted an Early Alert Program for the purpose of identifying and advising first-year students in academic difficulty. In 2001, the Advising Office not only expanded and refined the program but also began to collect data about its effectiveness. The goals of the program are: to enhance the academic success of first-year students through an intrusive academic advising program and to impact first-year student persistence by offering opportunities for student success and learning potential. Every October, the university collects early semester grades from instructors who teach 100- or 200-level courses. The university then notifies students who are receiving grades of D or F. Following this notification, advisors contact the students by phone or e-mail to schedule an intervention session. During this session, advisors address the academic difficulties experienced by students, recommend general study strategies, and provide specific study tips from instructors.

Critical Issue: Providing Effective Schooling for Students at Risk
ISSUE: Students who are placed at risk due to poverty, race, ethnicity, language, or other factors are rarely well served by their schools (Hilliard, 1989; Letgers, McDill, & McPartland, 1993). They often attend schools where they are tracked into substandard courses and programs holding low expectations for learning (Oakes, 1985; Wheelock, 1992). If schools are to achieve the desired goal of success for all students, they must hold high expectations for all, especially this growing segment of learners. They must view these students as having strengths, not "deficits," and adopt programs and practices that help all students to achieve their true potential. OVERVIEW: The question of what it means to be "at risk" is controversial. When children do not succeed in school, educators and others disagree about who or what is to blame. Because learning is a process that takes place both inside and outside school, an ecological approach offers a working description of the term at risk . In this view, inadequacies in any arena of lifethe school, the home, or the communitycan contribute to academic failure when not compensated for in another arena.

Welcome to ABC Learn
ABC Learn, Inc. is a 501( c )(3) non-profit education corporation that has been working with youth since 1996. We have donated our money, time, skills and efforts to teach children language arts, math, music, and art. ABC Learn, Inc. has worked successfully in Los Angeles County with various departments including Department of Youth and Family Services, Department of Juvenile Probation, LA County Department of Education, LAPD, LAUSD and various City and County public officials. We have had success in detention camps teaching thousands of juveniles how to read. Our students achieved much higher scholastic scores, and were extremely pleased with our program. We receive numerous letters from our students and parents, as well as schools and probation personnel thanking us for our dedicated efforts. Our program has successfully changed the lives of those it has touched. We take pride in the achievements of our students. Our objective is to assist students, teachers, parents, and the school system! ABC Learn, Inc. and our affiliates understand that we must work together to raise current educational levels and standards. Today’s society brings many varied complications into the classroom. Teachers can no longer prepare one lesson and cover all students in the classroom. Students’ learning levels within the same age group have become extremely varied in range over the past several years. As a result, it is impossible for a teacher to be effective for all students. It is our goal to help each student reach his/her proper grade level. We have found that once a child understands the language and math requirements, all other subjects are positively affected as well.

Who Are At-Risk Students? How Do We Help Them?
Identifying at-risk students can be a difficult task for instructors and administrators alike. Since the typical class size per teacher continues to grow, it is hard for any instructor to truly "know" their students. Also, many legal issues and battles make teachers quite wary of knowing their students on a personal level for fear of accusations of misconduct. If that is the case, what does it take to identify at-risk students? There are a few simple ways to measure at-risk student behavior in a quantifiable manner. It may not work every time, but it can be as simple as tracking a few numbers and behaviors and keeping some good notes. The first and most obvious metric to observe when looking for at-risk students is grades. What students have started out the semester with low scores? For the students who score low in the beginning, having a conversation with them may be the only help they need. Maybe they just needed motivation, or they might need assistance with study skills, writing skills, etc.

The Future of Education is in New England

    At Risk Students
    A key focus of all programming is “the average student,” the so-called “C” student, who is 15-19 years of age, and who wishes to move forward and make progress toward his or her career and life choices. An equally important aspect of programming is the so-called at-risk student the student who is on the bubble the student who is at the crossroads of his or her life, where a “right” choice can mean a life which is pointed toward productivity and success, but where a “wrong” choice can mean a life of wasted opportunities, societal dysfunction, and even legal entanglements or prison.
    Obviously, our role is to convince all of our students that decisions made now, during these early years of high school, really do impact how the rest of their life might be lived out. And further, that they (as the young people they are) really do have a “say” in how all of this might happen. So, for the at-risk student, this time in their life is truly a crossroads time, a place where there is a fork in the road, and they indeed have a choice to make. All of our programs involve the support of tutors, as well as instructors, so that one tutor works with every two students, a very fine ratio. And, if circumstances demand it, it could even be that tutors and students would be on a one-to-one basis. The tutors are students from area colleges who serve not only as tutors, but also as role models.

misapprehension of risks associated with schooling This essay is has been expanded from an article, At Risk Students What Exactly is the Threat?
This essay is has been expanded from an article, "At Risk Students: What Exactly is the Threat? How Imminent is it?"
appearing in the Spring 2004 issue of educational Horizons , vol.82, no.3 Identifying the "At Risk" Student: What is the Concern ?
The sky is falling, the sky is falling.
Chicken Little RETURN
edited 7/29/10 How Do We Recognize Risk? It would be taken as a joke were someone to say, "He's at risk of winning the lottery!" or "She's at risk of graduating from Harvard!" This is because being "at risk" is taken to indicate a possible confrontation with something undesirable and we would find it hard to believe although not inconceivable that someone would think of winning a lottery or graduating from Harvard as undesirable. Also interesting is that someone's likelihood of not attaining something desirable is not, in many situations, seen as putting him or her at risk: "For a fourth grader, your son plays good basketball; but I'm afraid he has at best a very slim chance of becoming an NBA star." We do not take it that our son is at risk. Also, it is not at all likely that you or I will win an Olympic medal for the Decathlon; however we are not, thereby, at risk.
