ABSTRACT
Academic interventions aim to positively impact the behaviors and attitudes of students deemed to be at-risk in the school environment. "At-risk" status for school-age children is defined as "the risk of education failure, as indicated by poor grades, truancy, disruptive behavior, pregnancy, or similar factors associated with temporary or permanent withdrawal from school" (Kleiner, Porch, & Farris, 2002, p. 3). The array of potential causes for students' at-risk academic status almost necessitates that, in the public school context at least, a variety of school personnel be involved in creating and implementing academic interventions. Regular and special education teachers, school counselors, school psychologists, and others such as reading specialists and speech therapists may all play a role. Students and their families are involved in the process as well.
