The chapter “Screening and Progress Monitoring in Secondary Schools,” in School Mental Health Services for Adolescents, examines social, emotional, and behavioral screening in secondary schools. Mental health disorders in adolescence are known to be associated with poor school and life outcomes, including academic underachievement, school dropout, drug use, and physical aggression. This chapter reviews universal screening at the secondary level, which provides evidence to help assess instruction in the school and identifies those students who may not be making expected progress. In addition, the authors describe barriers to screening. They present data on types of common problems, justification for engaging in screening, and methods for screening and progress monitoring, including guiding principles and time lines.
