At Risk Students
Students considered in danger of not graduating, being promoted, or meeting other education-related goals. Risk factors may include, but are not limited to, socioeconomic status; academic background; behavior, cognitive, or physical problems; family or community environment; and school capacity to meet student needs. Prior to 2008, the Descriptor "High Risk Students" may have been used to index this concept.
