Inventory of Policies and Practices Related to Student Failure and Dropping Out.
Iowa State Dept. of Education, Des Moines.
This inventory was developed to serve as a working tool to help local education agencies review existing policies and practices that may negatively affect students' achievement and encourage their dropping out, especially in grades 7 through 12. The following areas are covered: (1) instruction; (2) discipline; (3) support services; (4) attendance; (5) student activities; and (6) school/community relations. This inventory enables the user to identify whether or not a policy or practice that is presently being employed at an institution is aggravating or alleviating a given problem, and what alternatives are available to reverse the effects of a dysfunctional policy. A student questionnaire, which can be used to help guide professional decisions regarding changes in policies and practices, is included. A list of 29 resources is also included. (JS)
