The Board of Education recognizes that academic failure by students can be directly associated with personal, social, emotional or behavioral problems beyond the traditional jurisdiction of the regular classroom. Therefore, the Board is committed to working in conjunction with a committee of faculty members, administrators and community members to implement a program which will serve to increase self-esteem, pride and academic excellence in potential at-risk students. With the understanding that there is no single solution to the at-risk problem, the district's program will be implemented through a series of activities within the classroom, small group counseling, individual counseling, and awareness and prevention efforts.
