At-Risk Students: Transforming Student Behavior details the warning signs of disturbing behaviors, which are often overlooked by educators and/or misdiagnosed by mental health professionals. Educators will be provided with the tools to: expeditiously identify at-risk characteristics; incorporate policies that support and monitor their achievement; implement research-based strategies designed to create a positive school culture that promotes teaching and learning. At-risk Students was written for district and school administrators, department heads, teachers, individuals employed in a traditional public or charter school system, staff in an alternative school working with at-risk students, as well as anyone looking to incorporate a comprehensive behavior system into their strategic school improvement plans as a response to intervention. At-risk Students is a must-read supplement for graduate students seeking a degree in educational administration.
