How CARE teams serve schools and students

CARE Teams are available at every school throughout Stark County to help students perform to the best of their academic abilities. There are a lot of minds at the table representing many specialties, skills and areas of expertise. Together, these professionals brainstorm ideas for ways to support children so they can do their best while they’re at school.
Every school district in Stark County is connected with a CARE Team one way or another. If there is a struggle at school or in the child’s home, CARE Teams work with students and their families to find resources and information. The goal is to make sure students have full bellies, mental health support and help with any drug and alcohol dependencies.
If you or someone you know could benefit from the support of a CARE Team, contact your local school district today.
