Section 2 presents a statement of the objectives and the specific provisions that the Iowa standard mandates. Section 3 consists of a diagram that provides a pictorial representation of Iowa's standard for at-risk students. Section 4 outlines the expectations for each local education agency plan, and includes an example of the process for local action. In Section 5, each of the following nine components of the at-risk standard is discussed: (1) strategies for identification of at-risk students; (2) special instructional support services; (3) coordination with community-based support services; (4) school-based support services; (5) appropriate counseling services; (6) strategies for involving parents; (7) involvement of all school personnel in the plan's implementation and in in-service training; (8) compliance with federal and state nondiscrimination legislation; and (9) provisions for monitoring behavior, social, and academic improvements.
