After collecting data at Wilton High School in November 2017, Dr. Luthar visited the school during the Spring of 2018 to report Authentic Connections’ findings and recommendations. Dr. Luthar brought the community together to discuss results —with multiple discussions with parents, faculty and administrators, and students— and worked with the stakeholders to design appropriate interventions.
Based on analyses of modifiable aspects of school climate, the Authentic Connections team determined that the Wilton community should prioritize the top four items, which were associated with symptoms:
AC’s sophisticated data-based approach yielded specific directions that we were able to use to make targeted changes to our programming for enhancing our students’ well being. We are delighted about this ongoing collaboration with AC!
This was our second attempt at collecting student data. The other group we worked with left us wondering, ‘what direction do we head in?’ The Authentic Connections work gave us the direction to know which way we were going. We knew what to look at and what would have an impact on our students.
When I speak with school heads across the country, student mental health is the number one issue that comes up again and again. Many schools really appreciate the roadmap that AC is providing to help give them direction.
