V.       Health and Mental Health Support of Students (Discussion)

Dr. Kristine Meurer, executive director of Student, Family, and Community Supports, explained that APS has created the Health and Mental Health Team (H/MHT) model, an internal “System of Care Model,” which is implemented throughout the APS district because one indicator of a Safe Schools evaluation study conducted in all of the APS schools showed that students who receive a health and wellness service before and after their first discipline infraction were half as likely (compared to students that had no health and wellness service) to have a second infraction. The Health and Mental Health Teams provide schools an effective avenue to address barriers to learning that are not addressed through the traditional Student Assistant Team (SAT) process.  Leslie Kelly and elementary school counselors- Libby Dolan, Manzano Mesa Elementary School, and Reina Luna, Eugene Field Elementary School gave presentations on program value.

 

Board members discussed the following regarding this agenda item:

  • Clarification of response to intervention (RTI)
  • 26,000 interventions between students and the health and mental health team members district wide billed to Medicaid, equaling $1.25  million
