In today's networked, interconnected world, a decentralized multi-site service delivery model is only effective if it is able to deploy cutting-edge technology systems in the implementation of service delivery. All intake and progress reporting will be on-line. The delivery platform will allow the database to reside on a secure Internet server, and will allow for immediate access as well as real-time reporting from anywhere in the world. Operation of this network will require effective and rapid data collection, and the ability to analyze, report, and summarize that data for immediate distribution to every member of the child's network to facilitate and advocate for on-going educational and counseling planning for each child and family. In this way, a child-centered model is created in the home, the school, the extended family, and the community, so that the entire needs of the child can be effectively met.
The database will have a browser-based front end, with permission protocols for data input by Academies staff and mentors. The database will be accessible by the student, the students' families, extended families, mentors, educational leaders, counselors, advocates, workshop leaders, and all community-based organizations. An automated reporting system will provide individually customized and user-friendly reports for all categories of users with information updated daily. Users will be able to send out group e-mails, individual e-mails, and will be able to engage in video-conferencing.
