School can present many challenges for students. Whether they are struggling in class, experiencing issues in the home or having a hard time socially, CARE Teams are available to help. Each CARE team is different, but they are typically made up of school guidance counselors, administrators, teachers, clinical staff, family support specialists and mental health professionals. With different skills and backgrounds at the table, each member of the CARE Team contributes a unique perspective to address student issues with wraparound resources.
CARE Teams strive to remove the barriers that prevent students from succeeding in the classroom. They provide community and school-based referrals to ensure students have full bellies, emotional support and anything else they need to stay happy and healthy. Every student has the ability to receive help from a CARE Team, as long and as often as the needs are there.
