The Policy Problem and a Resolution To Guide Organizations Working toward Policy Cohesion.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
A comprehensive, multifaceted, and integrated continuum of interventions is needed to address barriers to development and learning in order to enable good school instruction and positive opportunities for child and youth development. Such an approach is essential in enabling many schools to enhance their effectiveness and many homes and communities to improve the general well-being of youngsters. At present, there is no policy framework for establishing such a comprehensive and unified approach. Existing policies and practices must be revisited with the aim of weaving school and community initiatives into a cohesive continuum of interventions. This document provides both a formal statement of the policy problem and a resolution to guide organizations working toward policy cohesion. Exhibit A presents two component and three component models for reform and restructuring. Exhibit B contains examples of types of programs and services aimed at system changes and individual needs. Exhibit C outlines a model for a comprehensive, multifaceted, integrated continuum of school and community programs and services. (GCP)
