Following parent/guardian consent, the Complex Case Team can be accessed for:

Urgent Conference

The Team can convene in response to an emergent situation where child/youth safety is at risk.  The request is initiated by the Leadership Team representative working most closely with the child/youth and family.

In this case, the Complex Case Team will seek to connect the child/youth with community supports as an interim, and perhaps, ongoing measure.  Depending on the circumstances, the Urgent Conference may be followed by a Case Conference once the emergent needs have been addressed.

Case Conference

The Team will meet with school-based and school-linked team representatives along with family and /or community agency representatives to:

  • review child/youth strengths, challenges, and needs
  • explore additional strategies for implementation by front-line staff/family
  • provide recommendations to support the child/youth
