Michigan Children At Risk Resource Manual.
Harris, Kenneth, Ed.; And Others
This color-coded manual is a guide for local Michigan school districts and schools to meet the needs of children at risk, listing programs from across the state and designated information contact persons within each district. A foreword notes that the manual was developed from a statewide survey of all school districts designed to identify successful programs and to assess local schools' needs. Section 1 contains general information regarding the dropout crisis, provides a summary of survey results, and describes characteristics of successful programs and approaches at the state level. Section 2, "Children-At-Risk Programs in Michigan," is a compendium of selected program in use in Michigan organized under the following thematic areas: (1) identification and attendance; (2) curriculum options; (3) vocational programs; (4) community outreach and involvement; (5) staff and program development; and (6) miscellaneous. Section 3, "Children At Risk Contact Persons," is a directory of contact people who have been designated by their districts to provide information regarding at-risk programs, as well as a list of contact people for the various at-risk youth efforts in the Michigan Department of Education. Section 4 is a listing of Michigan Department of Education dropout prevention strategies. Section 5 provides a 96-item bibliography of reference materials regarding the issue of at-risk youth. (JB)
