Students of Concern
Purpose: Encourage early identification of individuals who may be experiencing difficulty coping with their environment or life circumstance. The interventions are determined case by case. See the SCRT Visual Response Chart for more info.
Submitted CARE Reports will be reviewed and referred to the most appropriate office for follow-up. This may or may not involve SCRT.
