I am wondering why if the main reasons students in disengage are feelings of failure regarding core subjects, family issues and mental health are the courts brought in instead of the Department of Children and Family Services, or counselor, therapist, and tutors of some sort. I live in Ohio and am a licensed prevention specialists so I work with many families involved in the court system. While the court can issue orders and services in our wrap-around model to make access available to needed services, the cost on the family is tremendous. Travel, time off work, court costs all induce additional stress on an already overly stressed family system. It would seem that the during the first 5 contacts someone from the school should have ascertained the issues and could then contact DCFS or the proper agency in your state or county, before involving the courts.

Thank you.
