Pursuing Opportunities for Moving Proactively from the Margins into the Mainstream of School Improvement. Guidance Notes
Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA
Recent policy and program analyses conducted by our Center make it clear how few support staff are full participants at school and district tables where major school improvement decisions are made. It is not surprising, then, that student support staff are not appropriately accounted for in school improvement planning and implementation. This maintains the tendency for student supports to be fragmented and narrowly-focused and to reach only a small proportion of those in need.
