Schools & Social Agencies Meet to Help Students

Topeka Public Schools provides many services for students both in and out of the classroom.  School psychologists, social workers and counselors work as a team to provide certain services.  Today, those three groups met to form individual school mental health teams and to plan and talk about their common needs when it comes to helping students. 
The school psychologists, social workers and counselors also were involved in a speed networking exercise with representatives of 24 community agencies.  “There’s a variety of people here all the way from the Antioch Family Life Center to pregnancy prevention groups to the public library,” said Stephen Greer, coordinator of social workers for Topeka Public Schools.  “These agencies are giving us information about how their services can benefit our students and families.”
