Following a prolonged absence due to illness or mental health/chemical health care and treatment, a reintegration meeting is recommended. Reintegration meetings allow families and staff to discuss needs, plan for successful integration back into school, and coordinate supports moving forward. All aspects of reintegration will be discussed in this meeting, including needs related to academic work and credits, social or peer related concerns, medical needs, review of any community-based providers, and developing a plan to monitor reintegration success over time. Often, one team member will be assigned as a ‘case coordinator’ for the family, ensuring families and students have a point-of-contact to coordinate support and monitor needs in the school setting. We know that intentional planning for reintegration allows students to thrive upon their return to school. Reintegration planning is confidential and participants are approved with students and families prior to meetings.
To schedule a reintegration meeting for your child following prolonged absence, please contact your child’s school. For general information, or to get connected with student support services in a specific building, please contact Lisa Holien, Student Services Coordinator at 952-232-3770 or firstname.lastname@example.org
