New Funding Opportunity: K-5 Social-Emotional Health Pilot Program

The intent of the K-5 Social-Emotional Pilot Program is to place a team of school mental health professionals in every pilot program school and will allow the team, in partnership with classroom teachers, to provide needed support for young students and their families at a critical time in their education. A significant goal of the pilot program is to ensure that students of elementary age receive the right level of necessary services, in the right place, and at the right time to help remove the burden placed on teachers to be everything to a student, from therapist to family counselor, and instead allows teachers to return to their primary task: teaching.

The pilot program will enable parents, students, teachers, administrators, and school mental health professionals to create a safe, positive, and successful school learning environment.
