USD 383 Board of Education, June 5, 2019

Kathy Dzewaltowski, observer

The board was provided information about the School Mental Health Initiative (SMHI), which would involve the district’s partnering with Pawnee Mental Health Services. The initiative is a newer initiative funded by a grant through special education.  Children who have experienced “adverse childhood experiences” are more likely to have issues with learning. Staff can also struggle with mental health well-being. The socio-emotional realm is another component of the multi-tiered levels of support the district already provides. The board approved signing a letter of support for USD 383’s participation in the SMHI.

The board was also provided with an update on bond-related projects. The projects at Eugene Field, College Hill Preschool, and the new elementary building in Blue Township are progressing to the design development phase.
