School Community Programs

Are You Concerned About Attendance, Academic Performance or Out of District Placements?

Ultimately, the goal of school based programs is to create healthy environments for learning by partnering with schools in developing prevention and intervention strategies that promote academic and life success for all of the students. Specifically, school-based programs help to identify and intervene during the early stages of problematic behavior and assist parents and school personnel in developing comprehensive strategies for addressing these behaviors.
