Special Circumstances Enrolments (Referral Program)
Mental Health, Medial, Pregnancy or other Special Circumstances
To be eligible for the Referral Program the student must be:
• genuinely unable to attend a regular school or an alternative education program, and
• receiving ongoing counselling, treatment or other appropriate intervention.
Enrolment in the Referral Program is not a long term alternative to regular schooling. Students need to be working towards re-integration back into a school or alternative program.
SIDE’s school psychologists gather information from a number of sources to assess eligibility (the family, the student’s current school, and clinician/specialist).
SIDE’s Referral Program provides for students who have special circumstances that impact on school attendance/engagement. The Program is coordinated by SIDE’s school psychologists.
