Family and Student Supports and Resources
Our district is committed to supporting our students, parents, and staff through building partnerships with community stakeholders and identifying resources that address a variety of needs our students and families may have. These needs may include supporting students with mental health needs, grieving and coping strategies, coping with divorce, suicide prevention/awareness programs, coping with anxiety, or addressing drug and alcohol concerns, just to name a few. Our skilled school counselors and school psychologists are also more than willing to provide support in any of these areas or share community resources that are available. Links to their webpages are provided below.
During the 2015-2016 school year, a district mental health task force was formed to determine additional training programs, supports, and services for our entire school community. This task force includes a variety of school district stakeholders and will be an ongoing oversight committee to address and evaluate supports and services that currently are in place and discuss ways in which we can strengthen our offerings.
Below is a condensed list of some of the programs that have occurred in our schools during the 15-16 school year.
