Cornell School District Receives Project SEEKS Grant!

The Cornell School District is pleased to announce that its partnership with the Allegheny Intermediate Unit (AIU) in Project SEEKS SES (Supporting Expansion and Enhancement of K-12 School-Based Social, Emotional Supports).  Project SEEKS SES is a ACHD grant-funded initiative tackling social and emotional health in ten Allegheny County school districts.  The project will be carried out over a two-year period. 
As part of SEEKS SES, the Cornell School District - along with nine other Allegheny County school districts - will receive $585,000 to be allocated on targeted social and emotional health initiatives identified by Cornell and the AIU.  
The project will seek to support school districts addressing trauma, behavior and mental health.  Further, the AIU will partner with high education institutions in placing social workers, school psychologists and/or counselors to support the project and to bolster a local pipeline of professionals to these fields.  
Over the past two school years the Cornell School District has increased its efforts in addressing social and emotional health.  However, there is always more to be done in the ongoing quest in making sure our students are healthy-minded and ready to learn. 
Over the coming months, the Cornell School District will provide updates on Project SEEKS SES.
