The Laconia School District is in year three of Safe Schools/Healthy Students (SS/HS) Program implementation. The SS/HS Program has five elements of focus:
1) Promoting early childhood social and emotional learning and development
2) Promoting mental, emotional, and behavioral health
3) Connecting families, schools, and communities
4) Preventing behavioral health problems, including substance use
5) Creating safe and violence-free schools

The New Hampshire Children’s Behavioral Health Collaborative and the New Hampshire Health & Equity Partnership joined forces to offer a 40-hour Diversity & Cultural Competence train the trainer program. From January 7th through January 13th our partners from FAST Forward, Safe Schools/Healthy Students, Project Aware, Project LAUNCH, and the Bureau of Developmental Services (Family Centered Early Supports and Services) participated in this interactive training.
