Making the Grade: Progress Report and Next Steps for Integrated Student Supports

In recent years, the education field has come to recognize the role of schools in supporting student health, safety, and well‐being by developing integrated student support initiatives.  These offer specific services and supports to students and their families to build a foundation for academic success. These initiatives, referred to as community schools and wraparound supports as well as integrated student supports models, help schools connect struggling children with secure housing, medical care, food assistance, tutoring, and other critical supports.
