The Care Team serves as a dispatch and case management team for students who are going through a difficult time due to various life circumstances including but not limited to, their academic progress and behavior, overall wellbeing, basic needs, and conflict resolution. If you know of a student who falls into this criteria please complete a Care team referral for the Student of Concern through (instructions in the sidebar).
