New Directions for Student Support: Current State of the Art
Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA
This report extends previous Center explorations of the status of organized efforts to provide student supports. In 2005 we did a policy and practice analysis of school improvement planning guides to determine how student supports were formally integrated into school improvement planning. We followed this, in 2006, with analyses of a sample of districts to clarify the organizational and operational infrastructure related to student/learning supports. Then, at the end of the 2006-2007 school year, we began a survey study to determine what efforts were being made to move toward developing comprehensive systemic approaches for addressing barriers to learning and teaching. This report summarizes previous findings and presents initial data from 300 respondents to our current survey. It concludes with a concise set of recommendations. The following are appended: (1) Survey Study; (2) Prototype Job Descriptions for Leadership Position; (3) Frameworks and Resources for Moving Forward; and (4) Recommendations for Changes in the ESEA to Move Forward. (Contains 2 notes and 2 exhibits.)
