School districts may require a clearance letter as a condition of a student returning to school after an incident that presents as a potential danger to self, others or property. CarePlus provides assessments with written determination that the student involved does, or does not present as a danger to himself or others. This letter is given to the guardian following completion of assessment if student is cleared.
- Assessments conducted by a licensed professional clinician.
