In February 2022, the Santa Clara Country Office of Education presented on Supporting California’s Children Through a Whole Child Approach: A Field Guide for Creating Integrated, School-Based Systems of Care, produced by in partnership with Breaking Barriers, California Alliance of Child and Family Services, and WestEd. The purpose of the field guide is threefold:
To make the case for establishing integrated, school-based systems of care;
To describe key initiatives (Expanded Learning, Early Childhood, Children & Youth System of Care, Children & Youth Behavioral Health Initiative, and ACES Aware) and funding sources to support this approach; and
To support Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) with pursuing sustainable implementation through funding and cross-sector collaboration.
