Child at Risk Program

Begun in 1987, this program serves children in the Montello and Westfield school districts, K through 8th grade.  This was the original collaborative program begun in Marquette County for serving children.  This is a joint program with Marquette County Department of Human Services, the schools, and Northland.  A mental health social worker is the primary therapist/case manager for this program.  This program is funded jointly by human services, the two school districts, and the WMAP.
 
Children are referred from the two school districts if they are identified as having significant problems achieving up to their potential academically.  The program requires the consent of the parents.  The social worker meets with the child and family in their home primarily.  Services are coordinated with the classroom teacher, the building principal, the school counselor, and the pupil service staff if the child is in special education.  The child-at-risk team meets monthly to discuss status of the children who are enrolled.  Each year the team evaluates the benefits of this program by looking at progress in academics, behavior in school, family functioning, and home/school coordination.  Most of the children enrolled in this program have essentially “gone on strike”, as they will not complete their school work.  This occurs for one reason or another, and the program staff seek to identify the answers to these kinds of questions.
