Case Management in Maryland's Tomorrow.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
Case management is an essential component of Maryland's Tomorrow projects. Case management is a client-centered, goal-oriented process for assessing the needs of an individual for particular services and assisting the client to obtain those services. Under Maryland's Tomorrow projects, a case manager develops a plan of service with an at-risk student, identifies the responsibilities of the student, and is responsible for finding and implementing all the resources needed to meet the training, education, support, and other needs of the student. Some of the actions required of case managers are as follows: (1) encourage parents to become involved in their children's education; (2) help students set realistic goals; (3) help students develop their own plan of action for achieving goals; (4) help students gain access to the services and resources they need to reach their goals; and (5) help students to gain access to services outside the school. The case management program can include techniques such as assessment, contracts, progress reports, weekly assignment sheets, and parental involvement. (Appendixes, which make up about two-thirds of the report, include forms for assessments, contracts, progress reports, weekly assignment sheets, and parental involvement derived from Maryland's Tommorrow projects.)
