The purpose of the Long Term Care and Treatment (LTCT) program is to broaden the scope and ability of North Wasco County School District to meet the diverse individual needs of all of its students.

The students served by this program have a variety of therapeutic and educational needs.  The program serves students who require schooling in a protected environment in order to protect the health and safety of themselves (and/or others) and allow the mental health treatment process to extend into the school day.

The program works with mental health providers with a goal of integrating treatment plan information into the educational environment.

The program must encompass all aspects of the student’s life and close coordination of the education and treatment plans is essential.

The program works with designated SAT teams from each individual school, as well as partnering agencies and organizations, to facilitate successful transition back to the assigned school whenever possible.

Located at Wahtonka campus.
