Abstract:

This paper examines the delivery of social and human services to school-aged children and their families through some form of coordination with the local school. A questionnaire was completed by representatives of 55 state agencies in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Respondents reported that their agencies provided 88 services for school-aged children and their families, of which 56 were provided through schools, at least occasionally. The services most likely to be provided through schools were education related (dropout prevention and special education), alcohol and drug prevention, and pregnancy prevention or counseling. Other types of school-linked services were child care, child welfare, family support, family welfare, child health, mental health, juvenile justice, and youth employment. Respondents from all agencies agreed that the most critical needs of children and their families are comprehensive affordable health care, social services that promote family self-sufficiency, and flexible school environments that provide for students' educational needs in scheduling and curriculum. Respondents also agreed that agencies needed to overcome obstacles to service delivery by creating effective communication and coordination structures; developing strategies to ensure adequate funding; and improving public attitudes, awareness, and acceptance of school-linked service delivery. Implications for public policy are discussed. The survey data are presented in 8 tables. Appendices contain the survey questionnaire and a list of coordinated services in the region. (Sv).
