The purpose of this research project was to determine if Pupil Assistance Committee interventions reduce student classification and entry into special education. Also as part of the research project was the statement that the Pupil Assistance Committee intervention process enables students to succeed in the secondary school systems of the state of New Jersey. Success, for the purpose of the research project, was defined as a reduction of behavioral referrals, academic improvement and achievement, and resolution of crisis situations. The school that the Pupil Assistance Committee served was a secondary school in a suburban section of southern New Jersey. Observations, interviews and intervention logs were the means of data collection that was analyzed to determine the effectiveness of P.A.C. interventions. Outcomes of Pupil Assistance Committee interventions were gathered and analyzed to observe their effect upon students referred to this body.
