COMPASS School

COMPASS School is a special education day school that provides crisis/trauma counseling and support, behavior management and vocational/transitional services to a multicultural group of proven-risk students in grades 1 - 12 who are referred by public school districts under the federal Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA). Program services are individualized, intensive and comprehensive. Students work on a 1-1 basis with case managers and clinicians. An Emergency/Interim educational program is available for Boston Public School districts. A Summer Program is available for students referred by public school districts. Learning disabilities, cognitive delays and emotional/mental health diagnoses are cited in the students' Individualized Educational Plans. COMPASS students are also challenged by poverty, violent environments, the influence of drugs/alcohol and limited familial supports. Approximately 100 students receive services at COMPASS School annually.
