Current through March 28, 2022

(1) Annually by August 15, each board shall develop a district plan that identifies the process for determining if a pupil is at risk.

(a) A pupil shall be determined to be behind in his or her age group in the number of high school credits attained if a pupil in grades 9 through 12 falls 3 or more credits behind in progress toward graduation.
(b) A pupil shall be determined to be 2 or more years behind his or her age group in basic skill levels based on a board approved plan of formal and informal assessment, consistent with the district's objectives in mathematics and reading identified in the curriculum plan under s. PI 8.01(2) (k).
(2) As part of the district plan developed under sub. (1), each board shall describe how the board will identify and meet the needs of the children identified to be at risk. A board, when developing a plan under this section, may consider the following:
(a) How pupils will be identified and enrolled in programs or provided services to meet their needs.
(b) How pupils may be identified in early childhood and kindergarten through grade 4 and what programs may be offered to prevent pupils from becoming at risk.
(c) How parents will be informed and involved in the programs or services made available under par. (a).
(d) What accommodations can be made to support pupils' achievement and success in school through any of the following:
1. Curriculum modifications.
