SCHOOL SAFETY IS ALSO A HEALTHCARE ISSUE
School safety may be a tough issue to solve, but research has pointed school districts and communities to what works. Making sure that students have access to nurses, guidance counselors, and behavioral specialists can help children get the attentive care that they might need. School funding and access to mental health care are all part of what is needed to help maintain safe schools. Supporting the referendum will help our district maintain our current number of nurses, counselors, and behavior specialists in every building.
