The School Wellness Assessment
The School Wellness Assessment is a 55 question online screening for elementary, middle and high school students. Most questions within the assessment are answered simply with a true or false. Other questions ask the students to type in a more personal response. Every answer is reveiwed by a Masters Level Assessor.
All high-risk students in the areas of anger/violence and depression/suicide will be identified and given to the school designee within 48 hours of the screening to ensure preventative treatment resources can be sought in a timely manner.
Once the assessment is completed a full report will follow within 30 days and will identify all students who scored high-risk within the 8 targeted areas.
3. Mental Health
4. Alcohol/Drug Abuse
5. Child Abuse/Neglect
6. Information About Others
7. School Environmental Concerns
8. Covid-19 Challenges
The Assessor will then work with the school counselor(s) and/or social worker to ensure all students identified as high-risk will receive a treatment resource packet. WSA does not contract with or recommend any specific provider identified within the packet. It only provides local, state and national services available to assist students and their parents.
School Environmental Checklist
The Assessor will meet with school principals and provide staff with a checklist prior to the student assessment being given. This allows the Assessor to look specifically at staff's concerns about students and the school environment and compare these areas to student concerns. 9 out of 10 times these concerns match one another.
The 8 targeted areas are addressed in specific sections within the report. It will not only identify the name, DOB, school and grade of the high-risk student, but also highlight students in yellow who should take priority services.
When a student has taken the assessment previously and has scored AGAIN high-risk within the category, the student will be highlighted in red to signify this student is at increased risk.
When a student has answered questions in an inconsistent or inappropriate manner this will trigger a response as potentially being untruthful or a student not taking the assessment seriously, this student's name will be highlighted in green within the category.
Graphs are scattered throughout the assessment to allow school officials to compare each specific school with their student's data. Adminstrators will be able to visually see what schools within their district require immediate attention and where resources need to be funded.
