North Shore Superintendent's Roundtable

The North Shore Superintendent's Roundtable Legislative Breakfast this morning at Essex Agricultural and Technical High School brought many lawmakers and school professionals together to consider the numerous challenges facing our students’ mental health and wellness.

Even as our state leads the nation in many critical areas that measure academic success it is readily apparent that an increasing number of students are experiencing anxiety and other more severe psycho social and health issues that impact their learning and performance.

I am grateful that the superintendents, principals and school professionals in our area are so actively involved in working to better understand these issues and how lawmakers can help to identify resources to help them as they try to educate students and serve their families.
