  1. Fairbanks Centered Services of Alaska (FCSA) operates two Youth Education Support Services (YESS) prgroams during the school year, one for elementary age children and a combined program for middle and high school age children. Both prgroams provide integrated day treatment (mental health) and education services. Admittance into the prgroams is only by referral from the Fairbanks School District. The majority of children enrolled into the prgroams have behavioral health or mental health issues that result in the children having disruptive behaviors in the public school. The YESS program relies on a low child to staff ratio, generally no greater than 3 to1, to help alter the children’s behavior so they may return back to the regular public school. Length of enrollment for each child in the program varies greatly. The maximum enrollment for each YESS program is approximately 21 children.This type of schooling might be an option for families with children who are acting out in a traditional classroom setting. While home schooling may be an option for some families, especially those who want an alternative curriculum to that selected by the Fairbanks North Star School District, this may not be an option for all parents. Not everyone (including parents) are meant to be an educational teacher, especially to a child who has behavioral and mental issues. This option might be the answer for some families.
