Program Overview

The School Transitional Environmental Program seeks to help students who are at risk for behavioral problems and attend large urban junior or senior high schools that serve predominantly non-white low-income students. The program's roots are in the Transitional Life Events model which theorizes that children are at risk for developing behavior problems when they experience stressful life events, such as changing schools. The program aims to reduce the complexity of school environment, increase peer and teacher support, and decrease students' vulnerability to academic and emotional difficulties.
