This sounds very well intentioned (as it is), and indeed quality early intervention is critical to the mental health of our children. This also is the report of one perceptive.
Do the parents with children receiving services feel they are making a beneficial impact? What is the dropout rate from the CASSEY services and for what reasons? Have principals received formal complaints?
How is CASSEY partnering with Project Cornerstone and/or Project Safety Net, and pulling together as a community?
Quality of efforts are important, not just the quantity of cases. Our children today have more academic, social, extracurricular and familial pressures on them from an early age than we have ever seen before. There is another perspective to this story that was left unturned, that of the parent and child.

To read a few quotes from parent and student surveys, you can check out the Palo Alto page on CASSY's web site.

One Parent's questions seem important. I went to the website as suggested by Another Parent, but the quotes look like marketing materials. Does anyone know the answer to One Parent's questions?
