Gooding Joint School District No. 231


Programs for At-Risk/Disadvantaged Students

The District will designate one (1) at-risk coordinator to collect and disseminate data regarding drop-outs in the District and to coordinate the District’s program for students who are at high risk of dropping out of school.

Each school year, the at-risk coordinator will prepare a dropout reduction plan that identifies:

  1. the number of District students who dropped out in the preceding regular school term;

  1. the number of students in grades 1-12 who are at risk of dropping out;

  1. the District’s dropout rate goal for the next school year;

  1. the dropout reduction programs, resources and strategies to be used during the school year.

The Board will review and approve the plan annually.

In determining whether a student is at high risk of dropping out of school, the District will consider the student’s academic and attendance performance as well as whether the student is adjudged delinquent; abuses drugs or alcohol; is a student of limited English proficiency; receives compensatory or remedial education; is sexually, physically or psychologically abused; is pregnant or a parent; is an emancipated youth, is a previous drop-out, is a court or agency referral; stops attending school before the end of the school year; is an underachiever; is unmotivated; or exhibits other characteristics that indicate the student is at high risk of dropping out of school.
