Framework for an Integrated Approach to Student Services Prevention and Wellness Programs.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Learning Support.
In many school districts, student services and instructional programs designed to address youth risk behaviors have tended to operate in isolation due to their being organized around categorical funding and professional disciplines. The framework outlined here is a multistrategy approach which seeks to organize schools' efforts to address the entire range of youth risk behaviors. This organization is fostered by linking youth risk behavior service delivery, associated models and orientations, and professional disciplines. The central concept of this framework is its ability to encompass existing models and orientations. The framework's goal is to help students become resilient and successful lifelong learners. Each explanation of the framework's various components covers three areas: (1) definition and examples; (2) contributions to the framework; and (3) connections to other parts of the framework. The various frameworks discussed here include school environment, curriculum and instruction, pupil services, student programs, school-community connections, adult programs, and the school-community advisory council. Some common questions concerning the community's role in this framework, and whether or not school districts are expected to adopt this framework are answered and a list of related readings appears in the back. A list of team member names and phone numbers is also provided. Contains a list of related readings. (RJM)
