According to the Comprehensive Plan for Expanding School-based Behavioral Health:
The South Capitol Street Memorial Amendment Act of 2012 (the Act) requires the Mayor to develop and submit a comprehensive plan to the Council of the District of Columbia that establishes and expands school-based behavioral health programs and services to all public and public charter school students by the 2016-2017 school year In addition, the Act requires the Mayor to make recommendations to expand behavioral health programs and services at child development facilities and to analyze and align health education standards with the behavioral health needs of District youth. The goal is to provide interventions for all families of students with behavioral health needs; reduce aggressive and impulsive behavior; and promote social and emotional competency in all students.
