This document reports on a fall 1994 working conference on linking education, health, social services, and other supports that children and families need, with the school as the hub. The conference involved six working groups. Four working groups were age-related, discussing early childhood, elementary, adolescent, and youth-in-transition school-linked programs. The other two groups focused on interprofessional development and evaluation. Recommendations from the groups were largely organized around the following themes: committed leadership, cultural sensitivity and congruence, participant-driven systems, interprofessional development, new research approaches, and flexibility in policies. The document includes: remarks presented by Sharon P. Robinson of the Department of Education and Jane A. Stallings of the American Educational Research Association, highlights of what is known from research and what needs to be known, a list of commissioned background papers, a list of steering committee members, and a list of conference participants. Descriptions of 22 exemplary school-linked comprehensive programs are offered, outlining who the collaborators are, the project goals, project participants, services provided, project evaluation, and what the collaborators are learning. Twelve interprofessional development programs are also described, focusing on types of interprofessional activities, how the community is served, clinical experiences offered, how schools participate, and program evaluation.
