Crisis Intervention Project, Boston Public Schools, December 1, 1972-May 1, 1973. Evaluation.
Marion, David J.
The Crisis Prevention-Intervention Project (CPI) of the Boston Public Schools is described in two parts: a six-month evaluation report and an interim report by the project director. The goals of this pilot project for the five Boston schools (three public, two parochial) were: (1) to develop an operational program of crisis intervention and prevention that would alleviate in-school forces which lead to discontentment and/or crisis; (2) to undertake a survey of the needs of the schools to prevent disruption; and (3) to design an instrument to test for crisis-proneness in a school. The administrative organization and CPI includes a project director, advisory council and five support teams with representation from faculty, administration, parents, students and police groups from the school community. Training programs, specific problems of the project, initial impact areas and related projects are discussed. Results of brief needs assessment survey of staffs and board members are included. (GMF)
