Education Risk Assessment
Organized by: Lenor Tate
I am working on an independent project to create a risk assessment that identifies, prioritizes, and provide recommended actions to reduce the causes of poor student academic performance. I started this project because I want to understand the causes of poor student academic performance and the solutions to address them told from the perspective of key stakeholders. I also want the assessment in a format that shows the various risks to academic performance identified by the stakeholders in the same template. This risk assessment that I am performing does this in a tabular format.
What is this risk assessment?
This risk assessment is a systematic and comprehensive method used to assess the modes of failure, effects of failure, causes of failure, and methods/actions used to prevent the causes of failure.
The risk assessment is completed by people that are stakeholders in the education of our children including educators, parents/students, counselors, and other stakeholders. They can come from different schools, communities, cities, careers, and backgrounds in order to provide a comprehensive assessment.
Education Risk Assessment Facebook group
I have created a Facebook group named “Education Risk Assessment (ERA)” which I am using as a forum to start gathering feedback from the Facebook community on risks affecting academic performance. The site includes a video tutorial, a presentation on the ERA, and instructions on how to complete the form. It also includes a blank ERA form.
If you are not on Facebook, the following link will allow you to view the presentation and tutorial.

The goal of this project is to work with a school in a low income area to create a risk assessment geared towards academic performance to be used as an additional resource to plan academic improvement activities.
If you are stakeholder in the education of children, I would be happy for you to provide your assessment in the risk assessment form in the Facebook group at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/EducationRA/
I am seeking to raise money to help move the project forward. The usage of the funds will include the following:
o making a donation to the school that will help with the risk assessment
o researching the potential solutions to the causes of poor academic performance
o acquiring resources needed to support completing the risk assessment
o as needed resource to progress the education risk assessment forward in addition to working with the school.
