  7. High Mobility Rate
  8. Minority Culture or Race and/or Ethnicity
  9. Family Poverty Backgrounds
  10. Delinquent or Disruptive Behaviors
  11. Multiple Safe School Violations

  13. Trauma and Stressful Life Events

The Board directs the superintendent to ensure policies and procedures are in place to address identified factors that may contribute to students being at-risk for school failure.
