School-based support program model designed to provide short-term academic, social, and emotional support to help students successfully reacclimatize to school after an extended absence.
Set of short-term, general education interventions focused on supporting students’ return to functioning in the regular school environment within 8–12 weeks of their return to school without falling back into crisis.
Staff members tracked program participation by recording the number of times per week students used each of three speciﬁc services: academic support, clinical support, and use of the classroom as a “home base” or safe space.
Study Results: Preliminary data showed positive trends in participants’ school attendance and high school graduation rates.
