This booklet describes a multi-disciplinary approach to student support services related to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) epidemic. The guidelines can be used by student support services personnel to evaluate the quality of services they are providing, by school administrators to design a comprehensive student support services delivery program, and by parents and child advocates to hold schools accountable for providing high quality support services. A section on HIV and youth looks at the incidence of the problem in America. This is followed by two sections that describe the need for HIV related student support services, and define barriers to effective support service delivery. The next two sections outline the essential components of an HIV student support services program. These components include prevention education, health-related services, referral and coordination of support services, policymaking and staff training. Also included are recommended resources and a checklist for evaluating HIV student support services. (LLL)
