How do school psychologists, school nurses, attendance and welfare personnel, school social workers and school counselors work together in California’s schools without stepping on each others’ toes? That is the topic of a new free workshop offered at Spring Institute 2015. This workshop, sponsored by the Pupil Services Coalition, will be held Friday, March 27 at 9:00 a.m. The workshop will be followed by “The Early Mental Health Initiative Model: Effective and Sustainable, School-based Tier 1 and 2 Services,” presented by Scott Lindstrom, Chico Unified School District; and Paul Teuber, Elk Grove Unified School District. Both 90-minute workshops are free. See the Spring Institute 2015 schedule for details.
