School District and Interagency Collaborative Services for Students At Risk in Utah: A Report of On-Site Visits.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
During 1992, on-site visits were made to the 40 school districts in Utah to determine the current status of At Risk needs and services for students. This report describes the findings from those visits; many of the findings are reported in list form. Part 1 of this report focuses on school district services for students at risk. It presents district definitions of a "student at risk," district estimated percentages of such students, and district indicated age/grade levels of need. Conditions which may contribute to a student being at risk are identified in the areas of family-related conditions, socioeconomic factors, and conditions intrinsic to the student. Information also is reported on district indicated sources for referral for students at risk, district self-reports of programs that work, and components of successful programs. Other issues addressed in Part 1 include district reports of needs to be addressed, barriers to addressing needs, needs for assistance, and samples of district reports of at risk fund utilization. Part 2 focuses on interagency collaborative services for students at risk. Included are reports of interagency collaboration, lists of attributes of interagency collaborative efforts, lists of barriers to effective interagency collaboration, and reports of needed assistance from state level agencies and organizations. Part Three presents an agenda for problem solving. Suggestions are made for funding, promoting interagency collaboration, streamlining efforts, and empowering local efforts. Relevant materials and forms are appended. (NB)
