The purpose of this issues brief was to obtain a better understanding of how online programs are dealing with students who have been identified as at-risk. The first section, "Strategies for Working with At-Risk Student Populations in Online Environments," documents a sampling of K-12 online programs currently working with at-risk student populations by examining the strategies these programs were implementing. The second section, "Trends and Instructional Practices for Teaching At-Risk Students in Virtual Courses," surveyed online schools to determine the online delivery and design methods employed to assist at-risk students. The authors conclude this issues brief with specific recommendations for future research into the experience of at-risk learners in virtual school environments. (Contains 1 figure.)
