Working with At-Risk Students

Are you aware of the issues facing at-risk students because of their economically disadvantaged backgrounds? In this course, we analyze the traits of high-performing, high-poverty schools with emphasis on exploring strategies to reduce the achievement gap and build community partnerships. This course focuses on improving the learning outcomes for economically disadvantaged students. We recommend this course for school and/or district teams.
