School-Based Clinical Services: Enhanced / e-START

Download a PDF of this webpage

Hillside’s School-Based Clinical Services – Enhanced / e-START program, a collaboration with Monroe #1 BOCES, is designed for students in grades 9-12 who are in the average to above-average range for intelligence but have emotional challenges that have made it difficult for them to function successfully in their traditional community school. The program provides a supportive environment that enhances the student’s ability to experience educational success and to learn strategies for managing mental health challenges. As a public school, BOCES provides Common Core and NYS-approved curriculum to students while retaining the unique resources and expertise to coordinate additional mental health support.

About this Program

  • The program consists of seven 6:1:1 high school classrooms that serve a total of 48 students.
  • Students receive instruction in the core content areas, directly from e-START teachers.
  • Electives are provided both at e-START and through BOCES Multi-Occupational and Eastern Monroe Career Center (EMCC) programs.
  • Hillside clinicians are embedded within the program and provide individual and group counseling, focusing primarily on skill development related to learning strategies to manage social and emotional challenges.


This program is open to eligible students in grades 9-12 who are residents of Monroe County and who are referred by the Committee for Special Education (CSE) in their local school district.
