Pursuant to Virginia's House Joint Resolution No. 415, calling for the identification and treatment of truants, dropouts, and youths at risk, this interim report provides a background and framework for policies and guidelines in this area, particularly as they relate to dropping out. It then reviews existing or new programs which address related needs and concerns, and cites current issues such as in-school behavioral management needs and the new age-18 attendance requirement. Thereafter, it provides recommendations for data collection and the development of policy guidelines and provides a timetable for completion of this work. (Author/TE)
