Is the School Year Off to a Good Start?
Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA
The beginning of a school year provides an opportunity to review school improvement action plans to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to succeed at school, address barriers to learning and teaching, and engage/re-engage students in classroom instruction. Five major concerns require particular attention: (1) Welcoming and Ongoing Social Support; (2) Addressing School Adjustment Problems; (3) Responding as Early as Feasible after Problem Onset; (4) Planning to Address Common Concerns that Arise from the School Calendar; and (5) Establishing a Work Group to Design a Comprehensive System of Learning Supports.
