Spokane Valley, Washington — In Washington State, students still struggle in school with their mental health needs. The Central Valley School District is addressing this issue while making a new math curriculum a top priority.
“This year we are working to implement our new math curriculum, which is one of the district’s efforts to ensure that all students receive that information from their teachers every day.
As for admissions, the district says numbers can fluctuate.
Central Valley Superintendent John Parker said:
The school district is currently working to implement new programs and initiatives to help students feel safe and secure in the classroom.
“Our family’s interest in public schools is to be an engaging piece that brings back to our school,” Parker said.
Another important initiative the district is working on is improving student mental health.
“Students cannot learn without a strong sense of belonging,” says Sothen.
The school district currently partners with two mental health agencies to work with school counselors and administrators.
“We will refer students who may be in greater need of mental health clinician support and will continue to work with students and families to help them become more engaged and feel a sense of belonging. We do,” Sothen said.
The school district hopes to work directly with parents to continue improving students and to understand where their child’s needs are not being met.
