This chapter covers strategies for youth who do not fit well within the previous tier system and especially those with very severe attendance and other problems. These cases may represent a de facto “Tier 4” group, or those youth and families far outside the sphere of typical intervention. Intervention models for these very severe, chronic “Tier 4” cases demand innovative, creative, intensive, and typically non-bureaucratic approaches. Out-of-the-box thinking about schooling issues is usually needed regarding attendance, graduation requirements, academic placement, coursework, and instruction and learning practices. Almost all of these cases also demand a multidisciplinary approach that will involve ongoing support and individualized case management practices for long periods of time. Sections include specialized programs, intensive case study and management, and second chance programs. Suggestions for the future of the field are presented as well.
