The two-day summit July 28-29 includes leaders from other school districts, municipalities, mental health facilities and hospitals, according to a district press release.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to get all the major stakeholders in the room to collaborate in developing stronger partnerships across the county to ensure everyone we serve and who needs our help is able to receive services that speak to their individual needs,” said Monya Crow, LISD's executive director of counseling and social work services, in the press release.
During the summit, LISD officials said they hope to identify opportunities to improve the mental health of students, the release said.
“More than anything, we want our students to feel rooted and a sense of belonging within our school system,” Crow said. “Having a strong mental health framework and safety net in place when our students need it is a core belief for Lewisville ISD.”
