The School Mental Health Summit is intended to support district teams in developing a comprehensive school mental health framework that aligns to the work being done through the district’s continuous improvement process and the MTSS framework. The two days of the SMH Summit will consist of modules that align with the national performance domains and indicators of comprehensive school mental health system quality. All domains and indicators are part of the National School Mental Health Quality Assessment (SMH-QA), which will be completed by teams during the training. The SMH-QA provides district and school teams a framework for assessing the quality of their school mental health system and engaging in strategic quality improvement. The SMH-QA will be accessed through the School Health Assessment and Performance Evaluation (SHAPE) System (www.theSHAPEsystem.com). SHAPE is a public-access, web-based platform that offers schools, districts, and states a workspace and targeted resources to support school mental health quality improvement.
At the end of Day 2, additional time for completing the Action Plan will be scheduled with districts following the SMH Summit. Action Plan will increase the continuum of school-based and mental health services available to students at the district. The Nebraska Department of Education will provide financial support on a one-time basis to districts/schools who participate in the ESU 10 School Mental Health Summit. Upon approval of the Action Plan to ESU 10 and NDE School Mental Health Team, NDE will allocate funds needed for the district/school. ESU 10 will continue to provide technical assistance and support throughout the year following the School Mental Health Summit.
