Linn-Benton Education Services District, Albany, OR.; ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
The "At-Risk Youth in Crisis Handbook" series has been designed to promote inter-agency agreement on procedures for schools to follow in managing crisis situations with at-risk students. Volume 1 explains the rationale for the Handbook, tells how it was developed, and guides school districts in adapting the Handbook to meet their own needs. Program benefits include a clear definition of school/agency responsibilities, establishing realistic guidelines, improved school/agency relations, an increase in collaborative efforts, and an enhanced sense of community. Suggestions for adapting the handbook to individual communities are also offered. The second part provides relevant resource materials, which include two ERIC Digests on school/social services collaboration and resumes of 12 journal articles and 38 research reports, books, and papers in the ERIC database.
