Universal Screening

Screening is the assessment of students to determine whether they may be at risk for a  mental health concern. This can be accomplished with a systematic tool or process,  including standardized student-report, parent-report, teacher-report measures,  examining deidentified, aggregate mental health surveillance data, or a structured  teacher nomination process. Screening is assessment in the absence of known risk  factors to identify students who may benefit from Tier 2 or Tier 3 services and supports.
