14 p. 

The design and implementation of a broad-based intervention program for students at risk of school failure are described, and implications are drawn for efforts to improve the education of at risk children. The Learning City Program uses state-of-the-art research to create a facilitating environment in which the continuous development of children and youth is at the center of economic and community revitalization efforts that will be sustainable over time. The delivery system that supports the implementation of the Learning City Program includes these key components: (1) a site-specific plan that takes the school's needs into account; (2) a schoolwide organizational structure that supports a teaming process for regular and specialist teachers; (3) a data-based staff development program for ongoing training and technical assistance; (4) an instructional-learning management system that focuses on student self-responsibility; (5) an integrated assessment-instruction process; (6) a family and community involvement plan; and (7) a school-linked comprehensive health and human services delivery program. The delivery framework of the Learning City Program mandates a coherent and coordinated approach with rooted connections with the family and community in the service of students. (Contains five references.) (SLD)
