In 2013, the SCYPT endorsed a set of recommendations (PDF) related to ensuring all children enter kindergarten ready to succeed. The broader and more comprehensive Fairfax County Equitable School Readiness Strategic Plan (PDF) was endorsed in 2017, and the recommendations of the School Readiness Resources Panel (PDF) were endorsed in 2020.
Strategies endorsed by the SCYPT have led to multiple initiatives to expand and improve the behavioral health system of care for children and youth. In 2013, the SCYPT adopted the recommendations of the Interagency Youth Behavioral Health Work Group (PDF), establishing the initiative that would become Healthy Minds Fairfax. The Children’s Behavioral Health System of Care Blueprint (PDF) (Healthy Minds Blueprint) was endorsed in 2016. A new blueprint is in development; the final report for the initial blueprint highlights key achievements.
The SCYPT initiated a multi-sector effort to address chronic absenteeism in Fairfax County schools. The Attendance Action Plan (PDF) was endorsed in 2015.
The SCYPT is working to develop a systemic approach to implementing community schools in Fairfax. A 2019 presentation to the SCYPT on Community Schools Updates and Next Steps (PDF) provides the basis of the approach.
In 2021, the SCYPT is convening a workgroup to develop recommendations to ensure all youth graduate from high school and, if not continuing with higher education, are able to obtain a job that positions themselves for a successful career.
