D.1. Family Assistance Program
Speaker(s):  Jeff Rippe
Agenda Item Type:  Information Item
Rationale:  The Family Assistance Program (FAP) was established in the spring of 1988 as a program of the Bellevue Public Schools Foundation.  The program was designed to address family problems which negatively impact the educational performance of students.  Earlier staff discussed with the Board that we would eliminate this program for the 2011-2012 school year because of programs now in place in the District.

The Bellevue Public Schools Family and Student Empowerment (FASE) program has replaced the Family Assistance Program.  There are four team members through FASE that serve as liaisons between families, schools, and community agencies.  The team members work to connect families to the appropriate counseling, resources and agencies in order to help students succeed academically, behaviorally, emotionally, and socially.
