Identification of students’ at risk

Guideline for Head Teachers

The headteacher is directly involved in the identification of students at risk in the organizational aspects, in the system of relations that are created in the school, in the assessment of learning outcomes and in the ability to design interventions. The guidelines thus cover all the actions that the headteacher puts in place for the identification of the problem and the different steps are linked to his ability not only to manage them, but also to establish effective relationships with the local area and with the social fallout of the school. For each step it is possible to have links, online resources and references to other projects.
Here is the list of the 10 steps:
  1. Knowledge of the problem
  2. Welcoming the new students
  3. Communication: teachers, students, family
  4. Methods and projects
  5. Evaluation
  6. Monitoring
  7. Analysis
  8. Report
  9. How to design and plan for the future
  10. Collection and dissemination of good practices
