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.

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
  • Other services, depending on the needs of the families.
