The initial need is to provide a safe and trusting environment for the child which will help them learn to self-regulate, increase their attention, reduce impulsivity and reorganize their patterns of reacting.  Relationship related problems are worked on using the NW BOCES staff and psychologist.  Each student has an individualized service plan developed by their IEP team.  As youth begin to feel  comfortable and safe in the safe and stable environment they begin to develop social skills, learn impulse control, make academic improvements, and integrate to a home and school community.

Written communication helps keep families and placement agencies informed.  Reports include:  weekly psychological reports; quarterly report cards, and IEP reports, monthly staffing; monthly treatment plan and discharge plan updates; annual Woodcock Johnson Academic Assessment Achievement; annual state assessment, twice a year NWEA (MAP) testing; and STAR Math and STAR Reading quarterly assessments.

Achievement Goal:  Annually students will improve their Northwest Evaluation Association/MAP scores equal to or greater than the average HSCSD#1 district rates of improvement.

Data indicates students are making progress in academic areas while they are in the NW BOCES Treatment Program.  Of the seven students in the program in the spring of 2023, they made an average growth of 0.88 on the STAR Reading assessment. In Math, those same seven students made an average growth of 0.91 on the STAR math assessments.

Behavioral Goal:  At least 80% of the youth who complete the treatment program will successfully integrate in the home community and have no further residential placements.

Since 1998, of the youth who have completed the program at NW BOCES, 83% of those youth have not had to re-enter any residential facility (data collected for up to a 3 year period after exit).
