Project Description

The Connecticut State Department of Education, in partnership with stakeholder organizations, is implementing the Connecticut Teen Parent Initiative. The program will provide the following core services to expectant and parenting high school students: case management, parenting and life skills education, child care, prenatal and reproductive health care, father involvement services, and flexible schooling.

The school-based service delivery model in each selected school will consist of a multidisciplinary team of professionals to carry out the core services, including one full time social worker, half time nurse and one full time home visitation case worker. The program will serve up to seven communities throughout the state (New Haven, Waterbury, New Britain, Hartford, Bridgeport, New London, and Windham). Program success will be measured through high school completion and health and wellness outcomes of participants.
