The SFT BOCES School Health Professional Team is made up of a Bachelor Level Registered Nurses and a Masters Level Certified School Counselor. These positions were made possible by a 3 year Grant under CDE. Together, the team meet students at their level and provide a wide range of resources and preventative education as well as individual and group counseling sessions. Five member districts opted to participate in this Grant opportunity with the focus being implementation of Social Emotional and Substance Use preventative education to all students, families and staff. Through this Grant, the staff has been trained as facilitators in the Strengthening Families 10-14 Program and one is certified facilitators in Youth Mental Health First Aid. School Districts that are participating are: Cheraw, La Junta, Rocky Ford, Swink and Wiley.
