School-Based Case Management: An Integrated Service Model for Early Intervention with Potential Dropouts. A Series of Solutions and Strategies. Number 10.
Smith, Albert J., Jr.
This publication introduces school personnel concerned with early intervention with potential school dropouts to a promising school-based interprofessional case management model that has been successfully field-tested in 25 very different elementary school communities of Idaho and Washington State over the past 7 years: C-STARS (Center for the Study and Teaching of At-Risk Students). Case management is a service modality that cuts across several different human service systems, including education, that share common client populations of at-risk children and their families. Children and families who need case management services typically have two things in common: they experience concurrent problems which require assistance from more than one helper and they have special difficulty in using available help effectively. C-STARS involves partnerships among schools, community-based agencies that serve families and children residing in the schools' attendance areas, and universities for preparation of both school and community-based agency professionals. The following topics are reviewed: (1) C-STARS definition of case management; (2) seven functional components of the C-STARS model; (3) three structural components of the model; (4) the special roles and attributes of the case manager; (5) two most common applications of the model; (6) overall summary of evaluation findings; (7) benefits of school-based case management; and (8) getting started. Contains 19 references. (JBJ)
