Hixson, Judson; Tinzmann, Margaret Banker
The implications of restructuring proposals for at risk students are examined in this ninth guidebook in a series of nine video conferences on school restructuring. Contents include a description of four approaches for the identification of at risk students: predictive, descriptive, unilateral, and school factors; a discussion of the relationship between meeting at risk student needs and overall school success; an examination of barriers to academic achievement; and an analysis of alternative approaches and strategies for prioritizing restructuring initiatives. Also included are pre- and post-conference activities, a program evaluation, essays and school-based activities highlighting conference topics, information about other video conferences in the series and computer forums, course credit information and a list of supplementary materials, 69 references, 2 video sources, and 9 regional resources. Biographical information is given on the conference presenters. (LMI)
