Identification of students’ at risk

Guideline for Teachers

The guidelines follow two basic principles: the centrality of the students at risk, and the continuous work of a well-defined team, involving different actors in the educational process: teachers, school staff, external experts, family. Only by activating a continuous process of welcoming, observation, adoption of individualized strategies and monitoring of their outcomes, it is possible to make an effective intervention to fight early school leaving and, at the same time, state principles which may be applicable and transferable to similar cases. The teacher must be at the centre of this process, but he must not be left all alone. This is the reason why these guidelines are strictly connected with those related to headteachers and policy makers.
Here is the list of the 10 steps:
  1. Welcome
  2. Observation
  3. Identification of Needs
  4. Setting up a Customized Plan
  5. Sharing the Educational Agreement
  6. Monitoring
  7. Ongoing Revision of the Customized Plan
  8. Improving Classroom Behavior
  9. Assessment of Acquired Skills
  10. The Final Outcome as a Planned Success
