School resilience program appraisal tool

In this project, a guide was developed for the Victorian Department of Education and Training to assist school leaders to determine which psychosocial recovery programs will be most suitable for their school community. The report includes two quick appraisal tools - the Appraisal Tool for Principals (Appendix 5.1) and a separate Appraisal Tool for Program Providers (Appendix 5.2), to complete. They cover program features, participants and scale, critical features of psychosocial programs, delivery mode, provider credentials, costs and evidence. The tools are intended to be used together to enable principals to easily compare programs and to assess if the program meets the current and ongoing needs of the school.
