Independence Community School District is committed to providing a quality education for all students.  The At-Risk/Dropout Prevention Program is designed to provide support to all students identified in our school district as at-risk.  These students may not be successful with core instruction in the regular class setting.  The district uses multiple methods to identify students as at-risk.  Once students are identified, we provide additional assistance during the school day.  Support is given to improve self-concept and academic success.  ICSD offers a variety of support services including, but not limited to, at-risk teachers/academic interventionists, computer based credit recovery programs, summer school, mentoring, counseling, attendance intervention, and an alternative program (Buchanan County Success Center). The goal is to have 100% of students show academic progress, 100% of students exhibiting improved study skills, personal and social skill development, improved choices and improved relationships.  In addition, we work to help families access appropriate school and community based services.
