  • Monitor business processes that enable effective structured counseling and or intervention for clients displaying chronic minor behavioral problem;
  • Monitor "interface strategies and processes" that ensure there is an effective continuum between staff who provide behavioral interventions with the police who are required to respond to violent or dangerous behavior;

  • Monitor the menu of wrap around supports to insure these supports meet the needs of the WWRC population and support the overall goals and mission of WWRC. This includes reviewing and sanctioning any new wrap around supports that are proposed and phasing out supports that are no longer necessary or relevant to the needs of the WWRC student population and support the overall goals and mission of WWRC.
