Indiana Student Services Needs Assessment Report
Legislative action last year required the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) to conduct a needs assessment of student support services and report the findings to the Indiana General Assembly. The report, which examines school system utilization of School Counselors, Social Workers, Nurses and Psychologists, has now been released by IDOE. While it suggests most schools have direct or indirect health and mental health services available to students, student access and the efficiency of services are highly variable. This report serves as a first step in an effort to improve the delivery of student support services across the state.
