Connecting Students to Supports

Launch date: Expected Fall 2016 End date: N/A

Too often schools see their students become victims of violence. At the same time, students who face academic, school discipline or attendance challenges while in school may become more likely to become involved in violence. The City, local charter management organizations and other partners will work together on a pilot to define the appropriate risk factors and identify students who are the highest risk for being involved with violence. A set of coordinated supports and interventions will then be available for these students to reduce their risk factors and strengthen protective factors.
