Kent School Services Network (KSSN)

Kent Schools Services Network (KSSN) is an initiative that involves many partners, but a single goal: to ensure all children are healthy and learning. The partners do this by bringing health and human services right into the school building to help students and families. This provides a one-stop location for families, making services easy to use.

 

  • Students learning, growing and achieving

  • Students and families getting the services they need, when they need them at school

  • Help develop the whole child and ensure that all children are physically, emotionally, socially, and academically ready to learn.

 

  • Increase student achievement

  • Lower student absences

  • Improve coordination of services

  • Deliver services as they are needed

Each KSSN community school has several full-time staff on site to serve families. These professional may include:

  • A Community School Coordinator who helps connect families with needed services
  • A Clinician who provides counseling, crisis response, workshops, group services and other direct help to families
  • Success Coaches from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) who help families gain self-sufficiency and get needed services
  • Other services, depending on the needs of the families.
