Michael Mensch, CEO and district superintendent of Western Suffolk BOCES, said the state should be duplicating the example set by Sagamore rather than deleting it.
"Children are in treatment, but they are also contributing to their education," Mensch said. "There's a level of interaction that's critical to a kid's security, and the thought of going to visit a child in Queens or the Bronx - It's not going to happen."
After their stay at Sagamore, patients, with the help of staff members, usually successfully transition back into the school system and community.
Mensch also believes that when they are relocated, fewer families will agree to short-term in-patient care.
"The notion to be relocated is…simply frightening. Fewer families will agree to short-term care resulting in children leaving the hospital [early] and entering the school system with greater [tendency toward] suicide and violence… No alternatives have been offered for the Sagamore program," Mensch said.
Sagamore has treated more than 150 kids from 60 different school districts in the last three years, Mensch added.
