  • Social Forces, Social Justice, and School Attendance Problems in Youth

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract School attendance and completion are significant indicators of health and positive psychosocial development in children and adolescents. School attendance and completion rates remain particularly stifled, however, for students of color, students in poverty, and students with disabilities, among other vulnerable groups. Researchers and educational agencies often focus on student and family mechanisms of school attendance problems with less attention to dominant systems that truly propel school absenteeism. To keep these themes “front and center” for stakeholders, this article summarizes key social forces and social justice issues that impact school attendance problems for marginalized students who are often excluded from many aspects of the educational process. These issues include education deprivation, migration and discrimination, school funding, school discipline, residential mobility and housing insecurity, adverse childhood experiences, school climate, school victimization, access to care, and other barriers to school attendance. Recommendations for research, policy, and intervention are presented as well. These recommendations partly include greater incorporation of various ecological levels, interaction effects, policies to promote school engagement, broader school accountability measures, proactive early warning systems, and culturally responsive multi-tiered system of support interventions.

  • Development of the Flourishing Classroom System Observation Framework and
           Rubric: a Delphi Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper describes the development of the Flourishing Classroom System Observation Framework and Rubric, which provides a framework and practical approach to defining and describing multiple interconnected observable characteristics of a classroom system that individually and together can be targeted to cultivate collective flourishing within schools. Beginning with a working theoretical model based on existing literature, a three-round Delphi study was used to develop the framework and related rubric. In round 1, 35 experts answered open-ended questions regarding observable behaviours of collective wellbeing in the classroom. Analysis of responses resulted in a framework with five dimensions, each with three sub-dimensions. In round 2, 23 experts sorted and categorised statements that potentially described each of the 15 sub-dimensions. Analyses created definitions of each sub-dimension and statements describing how they manifest for teachers, students, and the class, along with a description of the learning environment for each dimension. In round 3, 18 experts reviewed the definitions and descriptions, resulting in a final 15-dimension framework with a related rubric of 45 descriptive statements. The resulting framework and rubric provide an organising structure to identify observable system elements that shape a flourishing classroom culture.

  • Long-term English Learners: Untangling Language Acquisition and Learning
           Disabilities

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Students who have remained classified as English Learners (ELs) for more than six years are often labeled “Long-term English Learners” (LTELs). The present study examined the English Language Development (ELD) test scores and demographic information in a group of 560 students identified as LTELs. Despite assumptions that these students are still learning English, results showed many students who are labeled LTELs exhibited advanced English skills, especially on measures of expressive and receptive oral language (i.e., speaking and listening subtests). At the same time, ELD assessments showed many of these students struggled with literacy skills, especially reading. Perhaps due to these overlapping circumstances, we found many LTELs were also identified with learning disabilities. Based on these findings, we explored the impact of restricting domains needed for reclassification as English proficient on reclassification rates. Compared with existing decision rules in the students’ state, proposed models allow many more LTELs to reclassify as English proficient, and most LTELs not reclassifying are students in special education. Discussion focuses on interpreting ELD scores for students who have remained classified as ELs for more than a few years.

  • The Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Instrument (School Version): Development
           and Initial Psychometrics of a New Interdisciplinary Scale

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article presents the psychometric properties of the evidence-based practice (EBP) instrument (School Version), a new interdisciplinary measure for understanding and measuring EBP use that can be understood and used across the three professions who provide the most mental health services in schools. The instrument was developed based on theory, review of the literature, expert review (N = 12), pilot study (N = 20), and national study (N = 303). While the measure may have applicability for other groups of mental health providers in other settings, this study focused on the perspectives of mental health providers in schools, specifically school psychologists, school counselors, and social workers. Initial psychometric examination resulted in a 13-item, one factor model and indicated preliminary evidence for strong validity and internal reliability. No significant difference in total score among groups of mental health professionals was found, suggesting similarities of comprehension and application of EBP regardless of professional discipline. This instrument is the only one of its kind and provides a helpful first step towards common language and common goals when conceptualizing what it means for mental health providers to use best practice. Implications for school professionals and future research are offered.

  • Challenges to Measuring School Provision of Mental Health Programs,
           Practices, and Resources

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We describe challenges to measuring the type and quantity of mental health programs, practices, and resources that schools provide to students, as well as variation in these resources. We conducted interviews and surveys with school and district staff representing 55 middle and high schools in MetroWest Massachusetts with the goal of collecting data on (1) school-wide preventive services, (2) use of mental health screenings and anonymous reporting systems, (3) supports for specific student populations, (4) mental health supports and services, (5) community partnerships, and (6) staff trainings in mental health. Findings revealed wide variation in the programs, services, and resources that school staff described providing to students, as well as specific challenges in systematically collecting these data. We discuss the implications of these challenges, including barriers to documenting which resources are used by schools and studying which are most effective in connecting youth with needed mental health services. We conclude with implications for school psychologists and suggestions for researchers and policymakers seeking to better understand and document school provision of mental health resources.

  • The Silencing of Sexual and Gender Diverse Identities in Middle and High
           School Sexuality Education

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this study is to describe how school-based sexuality education (SBSE) in the context of health education frames and teaches sexuality, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Understanding how schools address sexuality and gender provides insight into how school systems might ostracize sexual and gender diverse (SGD) youth. This study used content analysis to survey 13 health education textbooks in the United States. The content of textbooks provides a sampling of cultural, economic, and political activities and the ways they may be portrayed in the school setting. All textbooks had to be (1) health education textbooks, (2) intended for middle and high school, (3) published in the last 15 years, and (4) required or recommended by a state or local Department of Education, or produced by a publisher recommended by a department of education. Results of this study indicate that 11 of the 13 reviewed textbooks had abstinence based or abstinence only until marriage sexuality education that presented narrow, binary definitions of gender and sexual orientation, and that ignored or provided misinformation about gender identity and sexual orientation. Results of this study suggest that school personnel should consider alternatives to widely available health textbooks to teach more inclusive, affirming, and effective sexuality education.

  • Development of a Teacher Module for a Brief, Bystander Bullying
           Intervention for Middle Schools: Perspectives from School Personnel

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Bullying is a significant problem in the USA, with both school bullying and cyberbullying peaking in middle school. Although 80% of students witness bullying, only half of middle school students report bullying to their teachers. Bystander training is effective in teaching students how to intervene; however, teachers play an instrumental role in shaping bystander behavior. The purpose of this qualitative study was to understand the perspectives of middle school personnel on the content, usefulness, relevance, and feasibility of a teacher training designed as a companion module to a brief, bullying bystander intervention (STAC). School personnel (N = 15) recruited from two schools participated in focus groups to provide feedback on the STAC Teacher Module. Thematic analyses elicited eight key themes. Participants provided specific feedback on ways the program could be improved, including providing more information about cyberbullying. Overall, participants liked the content of the training, but shared they would like built-in discussion time. Participants also indicated the program was useful, relevant, and feasible for middle schools in their communities. Participants indicated their current school offerings are limited and that there is a need for bullying-specific training. Participants also identified implementation challenges, including limited time and financial resources, as well as the need for teacher buy-in. Finally, participants reported liking the flexibility of a technology-based program, but expressed concerns that it would be harder to engage teachers in an online format. This study serves as a first step in developing the STAC Teacher Module for middle schools.

  • A Review of Group Design Studies of Reading Comprehension Interventions
           for Students with ASD

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This review aimed to synthesize the group design literature to identify the evidence-based reading comprehension interventions for children with ASD. The primary aim was to identify which reading comprehension interventions had demonstrated positive effects for students with ASD in group design studies. This review was initiated using both PsychInfo and ERIC in October 2019 with a second review completed in April 2020. For studies to be included, they had to include pre-/post-data on a reading comprehension intervention and include students with ASD as well as to be (1) peer-reviewed, (2) written in English, and (3) published between 2000 and 2019. The decision to review articles from 2000 forward was based on the publication of the National Reading Panel report (2000) and the wealth of research on the Big Five areas of reading. Five studies were found that met criteria, with a total of 141 students and 87% of the intervention group meeting criteria for ASD. Results showed effectiveness for reading comprehension interventions using anaphoric questions, direct instruction, and comprehension training strategies. These instructional strategies are consistent with single-case design study findings showing efficacy for these strategies with individual students and are important in supporting the variability of executive functioning skills needed for integrating passage information with whole group instruction as well.

  • The Effect of Selecting Interventions on Evaluations of Student
           Progress

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Ongoing evaluation of student progress is a key practice within tiered systems of supports. This study evaluated whether selecting an intervention influenced the number of observations participants requested before determining whether an intervention was working or a change was needed. It was hypothesized that participants who selected the hypothetical intervention would request more data points relative to participants that did not choose the intervention when students were not showing adequate progress, consistent with the sunk-cost fallacy. Whether or not participants chose the intervention had no effect on the number of observations requested before a decision was made, on average. However, participants that selected the intervention were less accurate regarding whether a change did or did not need to be made. Implications for problem-solving teams evaluating student response to instruction as well as ideas for future research exploring cognitive biases on decision-making in problem-solving frameworks are offered.

  • College Students’ Perceptions of Peers with Autism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Research on attitudes toward college students with high-functioning autism (HFA) in college settings produced mixed findings. This study builds on prior research by examining the affective and cognitive attitudes toward vignette characters with and without an autism label. Students from two public Southern California Universities (n = 712) responded to a counterbalanced order of three vignette stories with typical college scenarios with a peer with or without HFA. Female students had more negative affective attitudes than male students but less negative cognitive attitudes. Students with personal or professional experience had more positive attitudes, while Asian students had more negative attitudes. Results of the current study may provide guidance on improving peer attitudes toward college students with HFA.

  • Aspects of School-Wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports that
           Predict School Climate in Urban Settings

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Positive school climates are associated with numerous benefits for students and school staff. Although there is some evidence that the implementation of school-wide positive behavioral interventions and supports (SWPBIS) impacts features of school climate, such as organizational health, the specific aspects of SWPBIS that contribute to climate have yet to be investigated. In this study, we examined how different components of SWPBIS predicted 490 school staff members’ perceptions of school climate. After controlling for race and time in the profession, aspects of staff members’ school climate perceptions were positively predicted by the teaching of behavioral expectations and having well-defined corrective consequence systems, and they were negatively predicted by district support for the SWPBIS initiative and having strong school-wide reward systems. These results have implications for which components of SWPBIS schools should prioritize for training and development to have the strongest impact on their staff members’ perceptions of school climate.

  • Integrating Supports for Students with Wraparound

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Traditional school models and policy frameworks have often neglected the outside-of-school factors that can impact students’ academic achievement and well-being at school. However, a number of schools in the USA have been or are beginning to integrate community-based support services to address students’ varied needs. School-based wraparound is an approach to promoting student success through a process of identifying, securing, and coordinating relevant supports. This article will describe some of the history of wraparound, its use as a school-based approach, the core principles of the process, and some examples of implementation in schools. The article will then provide a review of the outcomes research. In general, the current literature and research on the use of wraparound services suggest that it is a promising and cost-effective approach that can help to support student success. Finally, some current resources for planning and implementing wraparound services available to education professionals will be discussed.

  • Project Mental Health Awareness: a Multimedia, Peer-to-Peer Pilot School
           Curriculum

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract There is a need for teenagers and adolescents to be aware of mental health topics that affect their peers and community as well as resources for how to seek help. Project Mental Health Awareness (PMHA) is a self-sustaining program designed to be incorporated into any junior high or high school curriculum to increase mental health awareness and promote early recognition by teenagers. The program facilitates and guides students through the process of creating Public Service Announcements (PSA) with mental health themes. After picking a mental health theme, the students must research the topic using appropriate resources and script, film, and edit a PSA targeted toward their peers. In the first 3 years of the program, 80 PSAs were made at two separate high schools. Common topics chosen by students include depression, suicide, and bullying. The program utilizes the students’ creativity and knowledge of social media and technology to provide mental health awareness and resources for teens, by teens. PMHA is unique in that it uses the peer-peer education model through technology and that it is student-driven with little teacher direction. Future directions include formal research on the effectiveness and impact of the program, spreading the curriculum to more school districts, and further building an elementary curriculum.

      Abstract: Abstract This study examined relations between student engagement and drug use using data obtained from the statewide biennial California Healthy Kids Survey. Latent variable modeling with confirmatory factor analysis indicated four conceptually distinct and psychometrically sound factors capturing academic motivation, school connectedness, caring relations, and meaningful participation. Further tests indicated relative invariance of the measurement models across grade (7th, 9th, and 11th) and gender. Structural equation models indicated unique prediction of drug use from the four engagement factors with academic motivation providing the largest magnitude of effect. Evidence of suppression was corrected statistically to show consistent prediction across the four constructs. The relative magnitude of regression coefficients diminished considerably with the introduction of relevant covariates. Results are discussed in terms of designing educational programs that emphasize multiple facets of engagement while at the same time also addressing pedagogical means to boost student academic motivation.

  • An Initial Investigation of School Principal Perspectives on School
           Psychologists as Systems-Level Consultants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Understanding the existing discrepancy between school psychologist engagement in systems-level consultation and the ascribed importance of such practice is likely multifaceted. Barriers, such as time spent in assessment, limited training in consultation, and high caseloads, are known to reduce the possibilities and opportunities for school psychologist participation in systems-level consultation as discussed by Barrett et al. 2017 and Curtis et al. (2012). An underexplored potential barrier to increased school psychologist involvement in more consultative activities, especially at the systems-level, may be resistance from school administrators, such as principals, to offer and engage school psychologists in consultative opportunities. The present study sought to explore principal perceptions of school psychologist preparedness for and engagement in systems-level consultation. Results of this study suggest principals may not perceive school psychologists as having the necessary knowledge and skills to provide systems-level consultation. Additionally, a principal’s knowledge about systems-level consultation and school psychologist accessibility were found to significantly influence how often principals provided school psychologists with systems-level consultation opportunities. Results of this study may aid school psychology training programs in preparing future systems-level consultants and help current school psychologists interested in expanding their roles by entering into systems-level activities.

  • Exposure Therapy for Anxiety Disorders in Schools: Getting Started

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Exposure and response prevention is an evidence-based intervention recommended as a first-line treatment for childhood anxiety disorders. Despite over a century of research establishing its efficacy, many school- and college-aged youth fail to receive timely and effective treatment. This brief review will summarize the rationale and efficacy of exposure-based cognitive-behavioral therapy, highlight the challenges of treatment implementation, and provide resources for practitioners seeking to apply exposure therapy in practice.

  • The Effects of Parent-Classmate-Teacher Support on Early Adolescents’
           School Mental Health: the Mediating Role of Mental Toughness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Perceived social support is an important predictor of school mental health outcomes of students. However, more research is needed on the indirect effects in this association. The present study aimed to investigate the direct and indirect effects (via mental toughness) of parent-classmate-teacher support on early adolescents’ school mental health. A total of 359 early adolescents (Mage = 12.77, SD = 0.91) from grades 6 to 8 participated in the research. The child and adolescent support scale, mental toughness scale for adolescents, and psychological wellbeing and distress screener were used as measuring instruments. The results suggest the importance of perceived social support from parents and classmates for school well-being, as well as the importance of mediating role of mental toughness. The present results extend our insight into the mechanism underlying the links between perceived social support and school mental health outcomes. Implications and limitations are discussed, and suggestions for future research are provided.

  • Clarifying the Relationship Between Executive Function and Risky Behavior
           Engagement in Adolescents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The study tested whether deficits in executive function are associated with adolescent risky behavior engagement. At baseline, adolescents (n = 102) aged 12 to 19 years were administered a performance-based measure of executive function and self-report measure of broad-based risky behavior engagement. Additionally, a teacher report for each participant delineating executive function was obtained. In line with our hypothesis, hierarchical multiple regression analyses indicated that adolescents exhibiting poor observer-reported executive function (i.e., teacher report) were more likely to engage in a greater frequency of risky behaviors. Conversely, there was no relationship between the performance-based measure of adolescent executive function and risky behaviors. These findings highlight the importance of obtaining teacher input when operationalizing youth vulnerability, particularly as this relates to understanding executive function deficits. Clinical implications for in-school intervention programs are discussed.
