Funding Interventions for Students at Risk. School Finance Series.
Chambers, George A.; And Others
Issues surrounding funding programs and services for at-risk students are discussed. The introduction and Section I, "Issues Related to Financing Programs and Services for Students at Risk" (Suzanne L. Juday) identify some of the problems that must be addressed to provide adequate at-risk programs and services in an efficient and equitable manner. Recognizing the academic and support service needs of the at-risk student is key. Policy issues relating to state and Federal funding are also discussed. Sections II-A and II-B, "Funding Programs for Student At Risk in the NCREL Region" and "North Central Region Definitions of "At Risk," provide data on at-risk program funding in the seven-state area of the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory (NCREL) region and the definitions of "at-risk" in use in each state. Section II-A also presents profiles for the following states: (1) Illinois; (2) Indiana; (3) Iowa; (4) Michigan; (5) Minnesota; (6) Ohio; and (7) Wisconsin. Section III presents the following expert commentaries on financing issues: (1) "Principles and Problems for Equitable Financing of At-Risk Programs" (G. A. Chambers); (2) "Equitable and Effective Funding for At-Risk Children and Youth" (J. G. Cibulka); and (3) "Fiscal Issues Relating to Services for At-Risk Students in the Midwest" (J. G. Ward). (SLD)
