Abstract

The primary responsibility of schools is to provide students with the essential skills that are necessary for full participation in society. Teachers and administrators know children's basic health and social service needs must first be resolved before the learning needs of high- risk children can be successfully addressed. Since schools cannot be expected to solve every student need by themselves, school officials need to reach out to other agencies that serve children and actively seek ways to collaborate and share resources.
