County Location of Forum What do you like about the Social Emotional Support policy ideas presented during the legislative session and this forum, and why? What concerns do you have about the Social Emotional Support policy ideas presented during the legislative session and this forum, and why?  How could the policy ideas be improved? What other policy suggestions do you have for addressing Social Emotional Supports to help improve educational outcomes and student achievement in West Virginia? Redesigning schools to embed social services to address student needs, such as Communities in Schools. Allowing flexibility to counties to employ the type of professional student support personnel (psychologist, counselor, social worker, etc.) that best meet the needs of the students in a particular school. Providing additional funding for student support personnel to work directly with student's social emotional needs. Increased access to professional learning resources to address the needs of students who are experiencing Adverse Childhood Experiences (i.e., Trauma Informed Education, Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports). Any other information written on the comment card.
Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Funded - in the school where the students are able to meet. Need in creating better guidelines - "friend" isn't the answer - need adults helping them sort through alternatives and better choices. Students need to be in class.  Training and expectation of teachers is impossible if academics are happening in the classroom. Cant do both with excellence. Training and information of how and where to get a student support outside of the classroom.  Get the kids in the class working on academics and dealing with life issues outside the classroom. Strongly Disagree Somewhat Agree Strongly Disagree Strongly Disagree  
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Needs to be funded  student support personnel - the need is there for professional counselors   This has to be professional trained individuals - not "guidance" personnel that only want be friends - has to be connected to teacher in class involvement as well. never to supersede the learning process to aid the student so they can learn.  Support students emotional needs so they can focus on school work - counselor work with teachers.  Somewhat Disagree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Neutral
Hampshire Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) It all sounds good. It provides support, much needed support, for students which helps student and teachers.   $$$  - we have students that blow up, throw chairs, etc. in general ed. classrooms. The classroom teacher is by himself/herself. How is this the best educational environment for all of the other students in that classroom. . They have rights too!! - To improve student achievement, we need families to value education,   - also need options to remove disruptive students from the general ed. classrooms so that the rest of the class, all of the other students can get the education they deserve.   Teachers cant teach if they have not supports w/students w/major issues or extreme leaning needs.  Neutral Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree  
Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) I appreciated the focus of the family supports without being addressed via an increase in student support personnel. Implementing trauma informed education, PBI and ACES by necessity will engage the family.  We can provide an outstanding school environment, however we need to recognize that our students are often going home to war zones.  1) My primary concert has to do with funding shortfalls. The needs of today's students and families are complex and costly. Properly and or adequately funding an effective number of professionals needed to effectively change outcomes  2) informing teachers (i.e.) trauma informed education, ACES, PBI is important and necessary However I overloading teachers will continue to cause staff turnover.  Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Jefferson Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Increased aide to assist teachers with kids - with autism, mental disorders, combative behavior need more therapists for students smaller classes help with coping more teachers.  I'm in favor of all the ideas first time teachers need preceptors for at least the first year of teaching  all teachers responsible for special ed students - need aides to manage their classes reduce class sizes, hire more teachers, less administrators.   (They put an arrow gong down) class sizes  give teachers - more access to psychologist, MSA, RN to help Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) We need to stop valuable educational time from being lost due to behavior/ and disruptive students. Teachers can not teach when  student has emotional and behavioral need that need to be addressed. We need full time licensed councilors, social workers, and nurses in every school.   - teachers are not psychology majors, we can not be expected to teach and be the sole provider of their emotional needs.    Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Handle with care support youth in social emotional needs.  too much is placed on individual teachers having 2 teachers (teaching asst.) in classroom. One handles behavior one handles teaching curriculum.  Kids at Hope Strongly Agree        
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) I appreciate the active steps here taking to combat the mental issues prevented and designed to each county. I agree with everything on this list. Especially being a student that see's it everyday, its something that is not being addressed enough in each school.   I think what can be improved is making sure that the people that are hired are there only to focus on here intend job. We don't need counselors scheduling 500 + students, dealing with family issues. Mental issues and coaching a team.  I suppose we really focus on every county's needs and bring in programs that help specific topics and family issues  Also making sure these kids are being check on during school  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) - Student support personal - it should be based on needs.   some schools need more help than others.  - training for teachers - ACES and trauma training should be mandated and yearly  - increased student support personnel - must be funding not just approved  communities in schools - wonderful as they should be encouraged and used correctly.    Increased student support - funding it can not just be ?? and not funded.  - more parent involvement and accountability   Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree number 4 on multiple choice they put starts beside strongly agree.
Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) - Increased student support, because any help we can give to our children and their families is crucial towards improving our communities  - training for teachers, because early identification and referral is the best way to help support our youth My main concern is that we are unable to support students and families if we do not provide adequate funding for those services.  - bringing in more community members to help build more rapport and support in community.  Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
  Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Training for teachers: support to be given in the classroom first hand.  personalize it per school/county  they all have different needs.  - Expand training for teachers to include all service personnel  - better look at mental health - take it more seriously  - check ups in school with those with PTSD and other trauma disorders.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) The idea of providing more support to address the mental health needs of all (all is underlined 3 times) WV students.

Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Increased student support personnel - we can't do much good if we don't have the people to do it!    Training for Teachers - we need to know how to help our students and identify students in need. Do not (previous 2 words underlined) hold these policies hostage!   If we can't make sure our students are safe, they cannot learn!

Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) much needed supports - first and foremost before achievement/inst. quality can be achieved.  Great policies - where are the people coming from?

BCBAs  School Psych SW   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Jefferson Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) All of these are great ideas!  Please consider more one-on-one core subject services to  help with anxiety or students who have fallen behind.  We also need smaller class sizes and more teachers. this will allow us to help reach each student at a more efficient level.  *Coping skills classes for all students   My concern is if these areas aren't properly addressed!  We need all of these services.  *Coping Skills, one-on-one, smaller classes, and more counselors. *Teachers need more training in dealing with children in cases of trauma/opioid   *Students need classes dealing with coping skills (teachers need these to help better understand)  *One-on-one  *More Counselors Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree #7, statement 4, added "We need all of these!"
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) I am in favor of increasing student support personnel & developing stronger communities in our school.  I have seen evidence of positive change through the use of the Project Aware grant & the Watch Dog programs.  Several of my students have gone to homeschool because their social/emotional needs are not (not is underlined) being met w/ the current support system. I am concerned about the additional training for teachers.   There is so (so is underlined) much we are responsible for already, I do not feel I am qualified enough to handle some of the issues these students face, even w/ additional training.  We need specialists!  I am also concerned w/ allowing counties to have flexibility w/ employment of support personnel.  some schools may not receive the services/personnel they need if the needs are great throughout the county. -Develop programs that will allow for community support w/o (w/o is underlined) additional money (WATCHDOGS - more eyes in the classroom to deer behavior issues)  -Why is there no classification for emotional disorders in WV? (there is in MD.) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree

Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) I am not sure what was presented in this area during the legislative session.

Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) I value that this topic is being addressed none We need to find master's level social workers in every (Previous word underlined) school within our State.  We need to model Virginia & mandate these social workers within our schools.  Please find social emotional learning-based exercise-based programming at the county level.  Expand funding for mental health with our schools! Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Increase number of social workers, counselors, support staff, programs - including evening programs for families (Including evening programs for families was underlined 3 times)  $25 million for socioemotional needs - to include behavioral... Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Neutral Neutral Question #4 on multiple choice they wrote - again.. smaller class sizes to presence of social/support will alleviate many issues in public education. 
Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) I support the outlined items It's not 1 size fits all. Like services in schools.  Like CARE Program.  A full time counceler in each school regardless of size. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Additional funding for student support personnel to work with students.  I don't like redesigning schools to embed social services. We (teachers) are overwhelmed with the material we have to cover now in the time we have, we re being stretched very thin now! Hold the parents (parents is underlined) more accountable for their students performance. Work w/ the teacher, not against.  Somewhat Disagree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Disagree Number 4 on multiple choice they wrote - Need people to deal with situation not necessarily more professional development  
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Anything that adds support for our students is a great idea.  Growing up is hard, but now they have more than just growing up to do.  Adding more support for students will allow teachers more time to teach.     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Training for Techers, Student Support Personnel Increased Student Support Personnel, and Communities in Schools (All Previous words underlined)    #1 Increased Student Support Personnel will provide additional funding for support personnel to work with students.  Too often excellent ideas end because funding is scarce or unavailable. My concerns are that money or politics will keep the status quo and students won't get what they need in public schools Train individuals I the community to be mentors for at risk students (Not to replace professionals.) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Berkeley Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) - We need more support personnel to help with our children who have emotional and behavior issues. We are so concerned about them.  - Our students who came to school ready to learn are losing out because their teachers are buried (buried is underlined) in behavior problems.

Morgan Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019)     Evaluate the policies and procedures that are adding undue stress to teachers and negatively impacting relationships, then determine how to reduce stress.  Policy makers should be considering social/emotional needs when creating or adjusting existing policy of all areas (e.g. academics, discipline, nutrition, etc)  The key to understanding social/emotional skills is understanding stress and its affects on behavior, learning and socializing. We too often focus on higher cognitive skills and intervention(academics, talking, etc. ) instead of realizing that in order to impact social/em./ academics we gave it start at lower cognitive levels.   Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Multiple Choice #4  they put for the i.e. - If for everyone involved in education

Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Decrease class size in all schools (it allows for better engagement - after all if classes are too big for engagement, they are too big for achievement.  Achievement gaps are by-products of the engagement gap.  Nurses, aides & support personnel have to be increased.  With the opioid crisis our counselors need more support.  Address child poverty (we're first in the US including for children under 6) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) The ideas address some of the needs, but don't fully address the scope of needs.  Can additional counselors be provided to serve K-12 based on a more manageable counselor-to-student ratio?  Finding (research based) tools to help w/screening students Making sure that the additional resources/personnel provided are appropriately deployed to serve the needs for student, safety, health (social/emotional/physical) and academic needs.  Need to include parents/care givers in training programs.  Need to include mental health and SBIRT training. Some of the problems described by teachers in their classroom are really community problems that should be addressed by the whole community.  Make sure the community is involved in all 4 aspects of this area. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree  
Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Increasing professionals in schools to address the emotional/social support needs of students.  Increasing training specific to trauma informed care/education and PBS. Student to counselor ratio not specified  Needing to lower cap sizes in classrooms  Better definition of what communities in schools Additional aides in classrooms & buses  Building into policy that the emotional support professionals are in the schools and available to work directly with students and address issues immediately.  Adequate meaningful training for trauma informed care/education  Including these type forums prior to introducing educational bills such as 451 Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree County was listed as Statewide
Marshall Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) I agree with having a student support personnel in every school.  In fact sometimes, more than one support staff in needed per school, especially in large schools.  I feel these support personnel should include social workers, &/or psychologist, counselor, resource officer, etc. depending on the needs of the students in individual schools & counties.  State funding needs provided for these services. See above or below "Handle With Care" program initiated in all schools in all counties state wide is a major need for students' sake.  This program informs principals of students who have had some type of family trauma &/or law enforcement involved with someone in their home.  Principal informs teachers, so that teachers can "handle that student with care" due to the issues student is dealing with.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Like the funding for counselors & support staff Need US DOE ratios + mental health counselors.  Specific recommendations.  Need  more support for special needs students in the regular classrooms.  Training for teachers (trauma)  SMALLER CLASS SIZES We need more time allocated for movement & P.E. at all levels & a decrease in mandated high stakes testing.

Marshall Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) More counselors in schools are a good thing for students more & more students are living in a horrible home life and need a friend to help. Kids going home to unsafe environment and no food all schools should be funded for food to be sent home for all students that are in need of this.  Also - All staff teachers, bus drivers, janitors, maintenance , cooks should  be taught to recognize all drugs, abuse, any child needs (more training) (previous two words underlined)   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Also service personnel add to the very last question.
Marshall Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Definitely a need for increased funding due to more and more kids needing emotional support. Training needs to be extended to Service Personnel also. Bus operator see where, how students live, what they endure mentally & physically. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Under # 4 on the comment card this was added.  But should be extended to Service Personnel also
Marshall Berkeley Springs  (Berkeley Spring HS - 04/03/2019) Highly agree w/ more student support personnel in the schools to help children who have very real (previous word was underlined) world problems at younger & younger ages. Parents and home life are very different from years past. Social emotional Support and / or training should be inclusive to all school employees not just teachers. Bus operators, secretaries, aides, custodians all have interactions w/ these students.

Putnam Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) * Student Support Personnel need to have "counselors" as well as schedule guidance professionals.  *Teachers need ongoing training   Ongoing teacher/all staff Training to address issues such as dealing with autistic students, TBI students, emotionally disturbed, etc. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) I'd like to see the increased student support personnel, training for teachers on handling trauma, & the hiring or more student support personnel.  Thank you for coming out to get ideas to improve our schools which will in turn improve our communities & our state!! Our students need more social emotional supports in order to be successful in school & come to us ready to learn. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Marion Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) I like using schools to embed social services. A great place-perhaps the only place.  Our students desperately need support personnel in the area of social emotional supports.  Teacher training and teachers professional development in TRAMA INFORMED CARE (ACEs BIPs PBIS) is a fundamental component of a strong pd program. We like the support personnel component but where is the $$  The counselor vs social worker may need sorted out-we may need to redefine roles.  Emphasize the social emotional supports for early learners prek-3rd grade. Parent training  Family support emphasize need to be highlighted a bit more.  Mandatory professional development for ALL STAFF - service personnel as well in trauma informed care and ensuring a trauma sensitive environment.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Increased Student Support Personnel -> will provide more support  ->could relieve the burden on counselors so they can spend more one-on-one time  ->could provide professional support for more series issues  Training for Teachers->can inform teachers on ways to support students or where to direct them for help  Student Support->could give counties an opportunity to employ needed personnel  Communities in schools->can provide additional support Increased student support Personnel->could be hinder students' quality education by missing more class time  Training for Teachers->could put more burden on teachers to perform as counselors or psychiatrists instead of teachers  Student Support Personnel->may need extra funding to employ the specific personnel  ->the counties may not know that employees or support each individual school needs  Communities in school->these services are free to come & go & may not be available when needed  ->may not be there to see day to day needs Truancy->redesign to hold parents are caregivers accountable for providing & enforcing education for their children  Funding for schools based on aspects other than student test scores.  ->evaluations, surveys, project-based assessments  Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019)   Schools are the life of the sword in social and personal change.  The problem occurs when the responsibility is not shared in the county work force.  Not everyone sees public school as a (illegible) or method of change.    Somewhat Disagree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree

Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) We need as much support for these students as we can get.  Kids are coming from horrible family situations and need support to deal with it.  Let's find a way to stop the cycle of generational poverty/drug use/crime and take care of these kids early. I like that we recognize there is a serious problem, but it will take a lot of money.  to ever begin to fix it. My students get clean and we send them back to drug-addicted families. Shortly after leaving, a lot of girls end up pregnant.  Many boys at my school have fathered more than one child with more than one baby momma. We need to reach these kids when they are still young enough to not end up on that path. We need more structured after school programs when students could find mentors and will not be out on the streets getting into trouble.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Braxton Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) It is apparent that many children are neglected in many ways.  Teachers end up meeting needs that aren't met for children by others. Should the school system employ social workers, psychologist & counselors or should other agencies provide this services to the children and families   Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) 1. Increase student support-we need this-we need to follow a formula for # of student per counselor.  2. Services in the schools-clinics, etc. The "Training for Teachers" needs to be on going and not a one stop PD with a "Sit and get" approach-I fear this training will replace the quality health professionals we need in the school- Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Lewis Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Community schools.  Wrap around services for families  Alternatives for students to spend half of their day in a therapeutic environment and other have on academics.  Teachers need PD on trauma, ACEs etc. None-we need more.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) The more money invested in social and emotional support the better. I am not sure you can do enough. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Lewis Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Communities in schools-I'm in agreement with this.  Our students need extra support services now.  Student Support Personnel-yes, we need professionals to address mental health and other support for life skills for students of dysfunctional homes.  Increased student support-yes, we have homeless kids, traumatized kids, etc.  Training for Teachers-yes, especially at the elementary level.     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Lewis Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) -Our students NEED social series at school.  So many are victims to the opioid epidemic, poverty, neglect, & abuse. Teachers do not have the appropriate time or training to offer support.  -Support personnel: our schools do not have adequate personal to meet our students' emotional needs.  -Increased students support personnel: our counselors do not have the schedule to meet with the number of students who need their support. They are teaching whole group, being test coordinators, scheduling classes, etc.  -Increased training for teachers:  We need more valuable training to meet the changing needs of our students! Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) I support additional help in/during the school day.  Parents are failing in so may cases an its the kids who suffer. Inconsistency school to school  Truancy laws that are enforced & consequences enforced. Support systems in school systems need to be consistently in the school.  The opioid epidemic & grandparenting have created opportunity for as much social/emotional support as possible. Strongly Agree Strongly Disagree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Monongalia Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) All efforts at providing more services to students & families would be VERY important.  Need to lower the ratio for counselors in the schools. Should have social workers in every school that wants one.  Need to fund space & designated time to work with students w/out it interfering with their education. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Monongalia Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) embed social services into schools  more training for teachers and school personnel who deal with these kids daily. A small population of students in every school receive the most attention from staff because of their crisis.  We need training, more hands, etc. to reach all of our kids-not just the ones with baggage.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Definitely needed.  Financial burden should be on the state.  Needed on  consistent basis. Teachers need more training to better care for struggling students.  You get what you pay for.  If the state does not want to provide needed funding to education & educational services-then our state will not get productive, high-quality graduates.  Parents/caregivers held accountable.  Truancy with teeth.  Legislatures should be REQUIRED to complete hours of service in public school before making decisions concerning education.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) -additional staff  -more training for teachers  -have social series come into schools    I really like the whole social emotional supports component Counselors are spread too think (need more) time built in school day for support personnel to check in with students Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Marion Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) It is so needed I love all these ideas but am concerned w/funding.  Where will funding come from? We need more training for school counselors - redefine their roles.  Over the years the role has changed to scheduling, testing, entering data into WVEIS, etc. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Nicholas Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) I love the idea of school-based health center integrated in schools.  Consider adding PMHNP for students with psych - mental health issues. This is one of the greatest needs in education & society. Consider obtaining funding from WVAG for interventions that are needed due to the opioid epidemic. Federal Funding WVAG pharmaceutical settlements etc.  Social media training for teachers & customer service training for school staff. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) All of these need to be implemented Too many kids in the class for teachers to provide the support they need. Make incentives for students to attend school - attendance is a huge problem. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

  Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Imbedding social studies to address needs of students. Teachers are not equipped to deal w/mental & behavioral issues. That mental health professional will be expected to go to 3,4,5 schools rather than one where they can develop trust, student relationships, & get results.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Teachers need those individual social (illegible) added (illegible) to be effective teaching Only concern is that (illegible) will be provided at wealthy schools/districts, but not at poor schools/districts.

Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019)     Implement USDE ratio 1/250 school counselor  Mandate mental health counselors at same ratio  Social worker in every schools/county  School nurse in every building not to exceed 1-250 students  Smaller class sizes  Increase PE requirements Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Marion Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) I link the idea of embedding social services within the schools and providing trained professionals to our schools. I like the idea of giving training for our teachers to understand the issues students have, but I am concerned that teachers would more from be expected to educate to be expected to offer emotional support in a professional way. Our programs need to include families and family support. Need a family component assistance with parenting & grandparenting. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Monongalia Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Increased Student Support Personnel  -Counties need flexibility to assign the support that is right for them. Not a one size fits all. Capacity-Teachers can only take on so much. Training is essential but (underlined) human resources are need to address the "whole" child. Specialized subject matter experts. The model needs to be sustainable-Funding-Accountability.  Develop a sustainable model that incorporates community.  Advisory Board. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Monongalia Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) The provisions promoting more money towards counseling services would be very well received.    Psychologist and other trained professionals (counselors, social workers, etc) should be more readily available to the students in public schools. My main concern is the idea that teachers could be further trained to serve as both educators and counseling provides for students in their school. This doubled responsibility would certainly take a toll on the mental health of the teachers themselves, and would also take time away from their ability to actually teach the material that needs to in a  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Any and all additional support for students and teachers is much needed. More funding don't send $ to charter schools when you have teachers/students struggling   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Randolph Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Too broad. Adding "jobs" to teachers outside content will not be productive Place DHHR offices in public schools.  Placer faith-based (ministers) in schools to address student issues.  Parent training as a means of addressing student issues.  More Flexible start & ending schedules..  All students to opt out.

Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Flexibility & local control around the (?) service personnel that we need.  Let's create a real model for "community schools" from the state level & support to do it.  What do real, integrated partnerships with local social service organizations look like?  How do we do it?  What are the barriers financially & legislatively?  Let's address those barriers. Start teacher training for the socio-econ needs that our students will present at the teacher prep program level.  Let's be bold and make our student teacher placements grapple with more than just the academic needs they will face.    Community schools in deep partnerships w/local social service organizations allow our kids to get both the best of our educators and those social service providers. Let's do a better more bold option for alternative school!  We had an intern who piloted an outdoor classroom one day/week with very positive outcomes. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree #3 ,- or give us more flexibility to spend our own funds as we want to.  #4 - But start @ teacher prep level.  Don't wait until they are in classrooms.

Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Support for students & teachers with varying needs as a result of dysfunctional families etc Don't leave out of faith based solutions.  Give faith groups access to help out. Officer to train and mentor families with levels of dysfunctionality. Ongoing support and training with regards to changing demographics of families.  Offer help mentoring to families with levels of dysfunctionality.  Allow groups from community to help with families and kids. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Monongalia Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Increase counselors, therapists, and nurses  Partnerships with social services + social workers, within our schools Funding -> we can't cut other programs to pay for social programs!  Until we heal our communities, we are going to see addiction, poverty, etc. Housing for teachers + support staff so they want to stay in WV!  Paying the student loans of Social Workers. Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Neutral Question 1:  "But Not charters!" is included at the end of question.  Questions 4: Professional Development Days aren't enough!
  Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Support for this area has been long needed -add more credits (courses) @ university levels that address this issue  -identify role of counselors -> not guidance (see below)  -current counselors are to provide mental & health needs not scholarship or college placements-- -Research into graduates of psychology or psychiatry with a license to practice mental health - as a recruitment plan to find employment in school systems  -bring back the arts & physical Activity to deal with stressful issues Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) We need all of the above in schools.  Students are dealing w/so much *e.g. opioid epidemic, abuse, neglect, etc.)  We need more resources so teachers can teach. Doctors 1st recommendation for anxiety & depression is exercise & diet.  We need to provide more opportunities for students to run off energy, socialize, get fresh air-work & play together.    Attendance, motivation, engagement & mental & physical well-being will improve. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Hancock Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Counselors in each school - ratio needed but at least 1 per building.  Police school communication - legalities of situations, are police departments legally aloud to talk w/school personnel issues?  Follow up w/trainings for everyone. #'s and ratios, mandates must include minimum and maximums to cover the diversity in our state.    Psychologists/counselors must have own/separate ratios for the amount of need within the state.  Funds must be directed to each psychologist/counselors   Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Question #2 - Require #'s/ratios for psychologists/counselors
Hancock Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Good ideas - more student support personnel and training for teachers.  Needed because of home life, drug culture, low socio-economics of WV in general. Wasn't acted on - seemed to be brushed under the rug.  Have legislators come into classrooms and really see what is going on! Allowing more community support and additional funding! Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Brooke Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) I think all of the components are purposeful and necessary.  We need more counselors and mental health professionals.  We have to meet the social/emotional basic needs of our students before we can expect them to be focused on academics. My concern is that it will be ignored by legislators who have no idea what is going on in our schools. Community/family education and training - There are so many grandparents and other relatives/friends raising someone else's children.  Policy change so that the counselor/student ratio is not so large.  We need more counselors.  One counselor per 250 students is too much. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Brooke Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Communities in schools - community connections are very important!  Training for teachers - trauma informed education and training for all educators. Support is crucial for students and teachers. Guidance counselors available full time at each school for emotional and behavioral support.  Ratio per students to  support large and small schools/counties.

Marshall Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Students need support personnel to deal with today's situations.  Many face trauma at home-need professional help provided by the schools.  Job specific training for aides & support personnel.

Marshall Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019)       Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Marshall Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) I believe all schools need student support personnel.   Many students in WV are struggling with issues that teachers and counselors are not qualified to handle.  These positions need to be funded by the state.  If we want our students to succeed they need to be able to work with the support personnel.

Marshall Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019)       Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) It needs to be formulated by educational personnel as they know best what the needs are and how to address those needs. Should be addressed on a county by county basis - no one county is like the next and the emotional & social supports differ.  I feel there needs to be financial support for each county on as "as need basis." More monies for this note ESA's and Charter schools. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) I liked the ideas presented by the (?).  More involvement.  The social and emotional needs are at high levels and need addressed. Need professionals i.e., social workers, counselors, psychologist.  Need training for teachers to identify problems.  Community needs involved with services available for students. Start early childhood.  Keep legislature out and dark money. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Student success depends upon the health of the students--emotional, social, physical.  This is the first foundation stone of building student success. Teachers are empowered to help students when the teachers are well-informed about any emotional difficulties or traumatic or disruptive influences in each child's life.  I know there are privacy issues here, but it would be helpful to be as open as possible. Start all emotional/social support programs in pre-school and continue as students mature. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) I like the idea that we will b able to hire support personnel to meet the specific needs of our students  I m concerned that if we are able to provide support to our students it may not be long term. If we begin these programs, but then take them away we will be doing more harm than good. We must first address the emotional, safety, mental health, and physical needs of our students before we even consider educational needs. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Adding more student support personnel  More training for teachers!! Smaller class sizes are a must!   We need more people in the schools to help.

Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) In today's society schools re becoming more obligated to deal with a child's issues that are not academic in nature.  It has become a responsibility of schools to feed, cloth, counsel and educate the whole child.  Teachers are not trained or qualified to assist students with meeting these special needs or assist in their mental health.  We need to have people who are trained and specially qualified to help students with their social/society issues, and especially students in crisis.     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Hancock Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) You need to equip schools to prevent future issues by tackling problems head on. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) I'm glad this topic is being addressed.  It's wonderful, but the need is so HUGE.  Do not let this opportunity to intervene pass by this year. Please consider smaller class sizes so teachers have a chance to help. The training for teachers and other staff must be ongoing. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Ohio Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) That social emotional needs are finally being addressed. That people are finally realizing that there are external factors and things that teachers can't control (drug use, neglect, abuse, etc.) We need smaller class sizes!  No more than 8 in elementary, 20-25 in upper grades.  That way, we can give social/emotional support and teach.  We need more - smaller social/emotional staff to school ratio-guidance counselors/therapists. Smaller class sizes!  More aides for special needs kids. Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Ohio Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) We need more counselors to help students who are troubled about safety at home. The class size should ne smaller so more attention can be given to the students having the trauma experience.  Students should be heard without barriers, or having parents refuse help.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Marshall Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) Student Support personnel   Communities in Schools  If you put 10 counselors or therapists in one school - that would not (previous word underlined) be enough training shouldn't be limited to teachers, include service personnel- all teachers & service personnel involved in trainings. we all work hands on. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Hancock Wheeling  (Wheeling Park HS - 04/02/2019) I am very glad that the emotional needs of student is being looked at so closely.  So many of our kids are in crisis. and it is vital that we address these issues if we are ever going to increase student achievement and the quality of life in our state. I believe teachers need more training that can guide us on how to educate students who are experiencing Adverse Childhood experiences.  What is our role as educator when we have students living in crisis, unable to concentrate on school work?  After the initial referral to counselors, how do we best meet their educational needs?

Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) I think children need more emotional support than ever because of the foster care crisis and the drug crisis.  I would like to see more community & church involvement in these areas.

Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Marion Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Students come to school with many social and family problems. Specially trained counselors are essential for student development.    There should be more aids to help to manage emotional and discipline problems to all students with special needs to remain in the classroom.    Training and sharing of ideas and methods should be encouraged with more meetings and workshops.

Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Student Support - The emotional needs of our students are not being met at home and they are not ready to learn when they come to school.  Training for Teachers - Teachers need training to understand the behaviors exhibited by the students - but professionals, need to be responsible for helping the students through the process. That if teachers get training they will then be responsible for meeting the emotional needs in addition to teaching their class and students.  Professinal needs to be provided once a child has been identified with an emotional need. More CPS personnel and law enforcement - they are overwhelmed with the crisis our state is facing.  They cannot meet the needs we have now and more students will be lost in the coming years. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) All schools need support due to our failing society.

Neutral Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Disagree
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Students need more support for students that are not teachers.  Teachers should be trained But Not the main emotional support.   More action needs to happen when abuse is reported to the law.  We need to allow teachers to teach, not to put more on their plate. Systems need to be in place beyond the schools systems to support students.  Need mental Health  Please give all the supports that we have for animals for children.  Parents have to be more accountable.           
Marion Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) I don't think we can provide too much emotional and post-trauma care.  Free up counselors to work with students. Be careful about requiring too much of teachers. We need to teach (underlined). We also need to know how to handle challenging students until we can turn them over to a more qualified counselor or social worker. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
  Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019)     It has to be community affair - we MUST include parents and/or caregivers.  If behaviors don't change, it's will not work.  Creating alternate settings for students as early as kindergarten - with parental/guardian involvement.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Barbour Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Increased student support personnel is a great thing because we need more help in the schools with kids who are in crises.

Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Student Support personnel and increase student support personnel:  with the amounts of stress associated with students and their home or school environments, we need to have trained people at the schools that can provide services fo all students who need the help.    Training for Teachers:  Teachers need the training to be able to handle situations in their classroom. My concerns would be the formula used to determine the correct number of support personnel In the schools.  This needs to be adequate to allow these support employees to do their job and not be the a "push them through" mentality.  Support the funding for the Family Engagement Centers as a community aua to provide families critical resources such as emotional support (counseling), tutoring, training, etc.    There needs to be a focus on RECESS for Middle and High school students.  The amount of stress and emotional issues that they have are exposed to Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Need for more training for teachers and school service personnel.  Need to have adequate funding for all these. Adequate flexibility and funding for proposals..  We do not need for unfunded mandates. So important we get this part right.  If not, others will not matter.  Cannot stress enough how important local flexibility and adequate funding are. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Marion Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Additional support - psychologist, counselor, social workers training for teachers - Trauma Informed Education Increased aid support. Not plan for students who aren't able to thrive in educational settings even when social services or counselors are available.  Trained mental health professionals need to be readily available.  Opportunities for after-school home-work help, counseling services, programs for parents.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Question number 3--the words "student support personnel" were underlined and "qualified" was written above them.
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Start        not sure if understand the whole when proposed Elementary not waiting until later.    Supports for handling challenges of opiods and their learning brain changes.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Taylor Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Students need family support-Families that are troubled do not give that support-social workers in the schools could help with that. We need that help. Guidance counselors need secretaries and need to spend 80% of their time with students. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) I love the supports mentioned because we have such a great need.  it is impacting the learning within the classroom.  We need counselors in every classroom.  Many counties are starting with communities in the schools such as mental health clinics.  Training is also important for all staff. The concern is that communities entities are having difficulty finding certified staff.  Also we need the time to do the training in addition to the content.   Strongly Agree   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Providing support for students in need.  Providing teachers with support to address student needs Just giving training to teachers, but not providing support Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Harrison Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) We need increased support to teachers on dealing with the needs of today's students. I'm hoping additional burdens are not placed upon the teachers but additional help is given with other trained people on board.   Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree  
Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) Increase Student Support Personnel. - I do not have the time or the training to meet the emotional need of troubled students. Increase salaries for counselors. Let counselors be there for our students, instead of doing scheduling, SAT meetings.    There are not enough qualified people to full the positions.  More funding/support for after school programs - tutoring.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Barbour Clarksburg  (Robert C. Byrd HS - 04/01/2019) We need increased student support personnel and the funding to go w/it. The are not enough student support professionals to go around! We would have problems funding professionals to have--and again-these positions must be funded.   Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Every school should have a counselor, nurse Psychologists and social workers - 3 or more school  increased teacher training to assist with students having adverse experiences  communities in schools to provide clothes closet, pantry, etc.  The word  flexibility to employ support personnel concerns me.  The need may not be considered a top priority by some counties     Hire someone with computer skills to do scheduling so high school counselors have time to work with individual students and group sessions.  Strongly Agree Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Putnam Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) - Instrumental component for classroom teachers  - PL for existing teachers  Evaluate teacher ED programs/add component  Money used for student support.   Flexibility for student support personnel  be recognized as one of the BEST  ?? sates in US for  soc/emotional support.  Look at data     - $ funding and be there for implementation  - Need to know more about communities in school.

Wirt Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) More counselors Not enough ideas. It isn't just about counselors. More aides. 1st grade aides. Social & health services i would like to see a program where art teachers can get their education paid for to become art therapists. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019)   I am concerned that the ideas presented are Not Necessarily. A result of a rigorous process that identifies the root cause of the problem  Eliminate the burdensome state regs. that (previous word underlined) do not allow local communities to use more of their common sense initiatives, i.e.  Strongly Disagree Strongly Agree Neutral Strongly Disagree added to #2 volunteers!  added to #3 mandatory coupling w/ community volunteers
Wirt Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Communities in schools - Wellness and clinics, good  Student support for CTE  Parent resiliency training  medical personnel needed in @ school  need attendance officers  need more support personnel   Invest in educational supports that are not just funded out of education allowances.   Training for teachers must be continuous building blocks, funding should not be taken from current training in standards, instructional, design  (lesion) or management (classroom), student, teachers, parents and principal leadership.    Home School - we need to be sure we do not let this become education neglect. Policy/code needs to be changed.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Refer to school counselor.org for more information.  The state of WV desperately needs increased social and emotional support through professional school counselors. The number of school counselors needs to increase as opposed to decreasing. school counselors are highly trained professionals (MA+30 or more) who address personal/social emotional developmental needs, academic development, career developmental needs, and more. ASCA's student to counselor ratio is 200 or 250 students to one counselor. many counselors already have higher ratios than this. Counselors can help students change their minds and change  their lives. professional school counselors also (previous word underlined) collaborate and consult with school staff, parents, and community members on behalf of students.   I am concerned that school counselors are misunderstood and under valued. I am also concerned about preference being provided to other types of mental health professionals. I am also concerned about the lack of education and concern of non-mental health related professionals and their power/authority to cut counseling positions. Professional school counselors have unique roles, different from any other school professional. All school counselors, including high school, middle school, and elementary school may have the freedom from other duties/paperwork to be available to address the daily social/emotional needs of students. High school counselors seem to often be overloaded with needed paperwork/testing rather than having full attention on actually counseling. This may need to change, or more counselors may be needed.  Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Social services are, to me, the single greatest need. Suggested $25,000,000 is just a drop-in-the-bucket compared to what is needed! -Small class sizes & aides in first & second grades.  -Programs to identify at risk students sooner & provide free (previous two words underlined) mental health care.  - More counselors in schools (400-500 studnets each is for too many!) Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) All of the ideas, from the stand point of restructuring the way that services are provided and managed Policy will be limited by the existing structure of the current system.  Changes enforced from the state level into regionally provided programs for specialized services.          
Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Have  to embed S/E and mental into daily instruction - huge task which requires training, ?? on going support.  - Need more school counselors  -need 1 designated (IFTE) to coordinate social /emotional mental health services and best practices - at county level  - build school community   - district level leadership ??  Identify gaps and who can support need/ ?? service  School counselors cant spend majority times with students not feasible with all requirements.   PD funding to support vast ?? needs   new teacher ??training include basics of YMHFA, S/E learning, students at risk and referral system through out 3 tiered model - universal  prev/promotion, early interv and ?? we ?? thanks  integrated ??  training alone isn't enough - need ?? to support teachers at county level. Must have integration and coordination of services , support  ?? practices for academic and S/E well-being and success.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree More support staff isn't enough, either   clear roles  community partnerships  coordination  all critical to transform schools  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) I like the idea of increased funding for student support due to the growing needs of our students. Students are requiring ,pre direct assistance for trauma, neglect, transitory lifestyles and incarcerated/absent parents. Social media use has amplified conflict between students. Ability to hire and retain qualified professionals to fill positions. Incentives, recruitment and competitive pay scale is necessary. Character Education can be taught by classroom teachers school counselors are the only person in a building (specifically) trained to address crisis and students' social and emotional needs.   Testing coordination needs to be the responsibility of administrators, not school counselors. It is a curriculum area and administrators are curriculum specialists Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Tyler Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Community in Schools  A) Doesn't have pervasive sites due to funding and facility needs.  Could be the coordinating agency for service and student needs  B) Parents must give permission for service in a health care service in school  Need student support personnel/increased funding  A) Should speak for itself  *B) Get data on behavior etc. to support this point*     Alternating placement - K-12 with Adequate support personnel to address basic social/emotional needs.  Somewhat Agree Neutral Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Funding increased support personnel - counselors, therapist, social workers, nurses, to make services available to children. Also, communities in schools to help students receive services.  Instability in funding sources - make sure funds are available. Wasting time and funds by NOT utilizing the support staff they have. (Using them for administrative duties  of secretaries etc.  There is NOT enough support in this bill to address the social/emotional  support for brith to three and elementary school Also, help for grandparents and others raising their grandkids.   LSIC - for funding  Legislators should observe schools in their district administrators should have more power to discipline.     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) More student support personnel so students can talk to someone and not carry all these burdens why they are trying to learn.   Like training for teachers to help us help students   If you want so many people then the funding needs to be there to hire personnel  Wish something we could do for parents.  - worked in elementary school with home school coordinator and she would offer meetings.  Helping parents which in turn would help students   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Multiple choice #3  They underlined the words "Proving additional funding" three times. 
Pleasants Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Our students deal with so many issues that were not as big problems in the past. We must provide for their social and emotional needs.  training for teachers  so that whoever the student bonds with would be able to help them   the wording is vague about what supports are provided. It also needs to be clear where funding is coming from.  Parent support and training is needed to complete the circle of social emotional health of our students.  Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) I don't know how this works - flexibility   Consistency between counselors and schools, counselors and kids.  Mandated ALE training and surveys for children  Tier of intervention  Time in Programs  Add extra parent, volunteer support with in the classroom  Reduce class size  Have LCIC include mental health/social emotional well being of students to supplement professional services -or to help schools know what is available in the community.  Emotional booster clubs - advisory councils of parents students, others in the community to address issues that may be affecting student populations, general issues, not necessarily therapy counseling  1:1 or in small groups. See community education as school, parent, behavior, Trauma, addiction partnerships.  Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Jackson Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) - The addition of additional personnel to meet the vastly increasing social, emotional and health needs of children.  Availability of the quantity of support personnel needed to meet the needs of your schools will be a challenge.   An important component of education reform needs to be the home school situation in WV. While may parents offer a high level of instruction, there is a significant percentage of those home schooling children are a result of fleeing truancy or CPS issues.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) We need more social services delivered in our schools. We need teacher training in school emotional supports.   I don't want to see schools having to choose between a social worker and or teacher.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Jackson Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Agree we need more support: student, parent teacher training as a teacher, I want better training!!! Not enough funding for programs, too large of case loads  Raise severance taxes on gas to fund these programs!     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Roane Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) I support communities in schools, more student support personnel, and more training for teachers. All of these things require funding.  We need to address the foster care crises and opioid epidemic in this state. These are some of the root causes of student behavior and emotional problems.    We need stronger /stricter attendance policies. Now, there are many parents that get in trouble with CPS, pull their kids out of school, and then the students cannot be monitored.   CTE programs in middle school   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) I appreciate and am in favor for all written in the flyer.

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Communities in schools - love partnering with existing programs rather than re0inventing the wheel Keep focus on children and accountability or parents more parental support/education.

Get parents involved in trauma training   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) - Recognizing the intense need of our students for social/emotional support is paramount to helping our students.   - training teachers to know what to "do" to help specifically.    So many things must be done for this. Make sure all the pieces are included or it will fail.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) The increase of support personnel for each school is necessity. Funding (previous word underlined) to pay for the staff... Coordinated efforts between social services, school personnel.....   Each school (previous 2 words underlined) needs a full-time nurse, several guidance counselors... There are benefits for schools for children with like needs … at least until the "crisis" for the students is over. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Offer signing bonuses to these people to sign on for a certain number of years.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) 8Embedded social services is a very good idea.  *County flexibility to employ support personnel makes sense  *All four items in social emotional supports are common sense or will help students. * There should be more emphasis on attendance. Attendance is a function of social support and is the most important correlative of student achievement. * Our target metrics should be targeted toward attendance and basic needs-  Nutrition, mental health, physical health.  * Establish a Proactive mental health base line for all students. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) training for teachers training for teachers becomes am issue to handle classroom teaching duties as well as the issues within their homes.  Change policies for Kindergarten readiness- our current Kindergarten programs are setting our students up for failure due to inappropriate expectations.

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Flexibility to use funding for professional services the local level feels are most useful. For example, social workers to work with families at the elementary level was very useful at my school, but then those positions were cut. Providing counselors at school is helpful to make sure students actually receive counseling. Will the 80% student time for school counselors really be spent on school counseling or on scheduling courses that could be an administrative function?  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) - Recruit psychologists from around the U.S. to come to WV to work with special education teachers (regular ed. teachers) to test current behavioral education models and report the results.   -Test students for social/emotional conditions early in Pre-K/Kindergarten to identify students early and help specific students -Teachers have a lot of responsibility with their current job roles, therefore, any social/emotional/psychological training should not take the place of permanent, new psychologists, counselors, social workers            
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) They need to find funding that will always be there that can support our students emotional health. I went to school to be a teacher, I am not (previous word underlined) equipped to handle all their emotional baggage. The right person needs to do that job.  I'm totally okay to allow a county to employ people in specialized fields when its needed.  A teacher should not be the only person that a child can talk to … especially if they need professional help. We need more (previous word underlined 3 times) support in this area! (the previous words were all written very large)  Students will not learn if they are too tied down with issues that they don't know how to handle because they are being force to deal w/ Adult situations. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) I actually like all of the policy ideas for social emotional supports. i think our students need all the support they can get. My only concern is boundaries. I would hate to see DHHR or a staff member to overstep because they are to involved with the student. Training teachers is great, but cannot replace a professional Counselor or social worker. Please keep up this line of thinking! We need more student support personnel   For our students.  Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Mason Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) I  like the idea of more social workers in schools. Budget Cuts has hurt and kids are slipping through the cracks, because we have less staffing. I think teacher training needs to be looked at as they are not trained in social needs. New teachers are leaving the systems, because of the frustrated. Regulations have hurt us in the area of discipline. We are not even allowed to take recess for misbehaviors. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Transportation needs must be met. Children cannot walk 2 miles to school when there are no sidewalks.  Additional social service, counselling, and nursing services and absolutely necessary target students to succeed academically and function normally in society  Funding must be increased for these services   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) * The policy shows there are needs & recognizes that fact.  * More training for teachers to help lift the burdens on the students' shoulders (Maslow can't learn until needs are met)  *Support!! *How much will this cost?  * Coping skills need to be pressed  * Teach them on their level # I can help is a great program  using social media to reach them on their own platform * Parent training  * Allow  communities to help (faith based if need ed) giving time/programs Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) More money for Social Emotional supports. We need more counselors. We need more support for students and teachers. The American School Counselor Association Recommends one counselor to every 250 students. We are currently at one counselor to every  500 students in WV. The money needs to be used to address the needs of each school. Local student boards could use the money in a manner other than its included purpose Mandate a 1:250 counselor to student ratio Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Added this to #1 More school counselors
Tyler Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) We need help! Families are no longer strong & focused on kids.  Neutral Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Pleasants Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Increased training for teachers -  We need to be better equipped to handle these issues  Funding available for additional student support personnel I'm concerned with the increased accountability on the teachers. We're already accountable for their academic achievement, how are we going to be accountable for their social/emotional health and well being? Different roles for multiple counselors   -Academic   - Social Emotional Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Tyler Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) We like (previous word underlined) the more money - increase to counties to employ support personnel!  We need more support for the teachers to deal with their current living situations and needs of students.  Invest in local counties, communities to help that are local. ( previous word underlines) Having a designated testing facility or teachers to test the IQ & achievement. So the testing is not taking away from helping students in need.

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) To provide social emotional support personnel - the current community & families.  * Need ALL the aid they can receive.  * Fix the community -  fix families - students will benifit There will be little funding to provide the personal counseling to individual students & social / emotional support their families  Any personnel should have specific job descriptions = Fund completely!!!  Include exactly what support personnel   Need to be included in a similar school system.  Social workers (previous word underlined) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Ritchie Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) That it is finally (previous word underlined twice) being addressed.   Good start! (previous word underlined twice) Access fir students consistently by a person in the Building (guidance counselor, social worker, ect.) not someone who spends any windshield time going from school to school. They need time (previous word underlined) to build rapport with students. Better professional development to not only identify students and their issues, but  also how instruction and student-teacher relationships to build rapport.  Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Wide ranging positive discussions-more than academies for learning Having more counselors would be good but hiring them as counselors not test givers. Positive family supports when possible Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Emphasis on getting help for the students who come to school with trauma induced behaviors The problem seems so large... but at least this would be a start Address attendance (previous word underlined) issues early - get support in place early. Parenting classes? Teach coping skills to elementary. Work towards changing culture of education not important  Students must (previous word underlined) see value of education!

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Teacher training is crucial. Having additional in school support is Pivotal to improving education. Student who are not emotionally healthy cannot learn properly.  We need systems in place that help teachers and counselors refer students to proper professional support personnel. Create an in school system of mental health that allows schools to place students with the proper type of worker needed for each situation Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) -funding  -provide training -budget cuts reducing number of qualified (previous word underlines) staff  -current staff is already divided among multiple schools  -create incentives to attract counselors into WV & into these jobs - they could make much more money elsewhere  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) That the need of students is being taken serious  Teachers should not be asked to address additional issues without being provided w/ the tools and additional personnel to address these issues.  - While there are not enough social workers/ counselors available teachers will remain the main interventionists. They are not trained for this nor are they able to address issues due to time constraints.   -Parents/caregivers need to be utilized more primary decision makers / influencers of their children Support personnel that is easily able to navigate issues within a student's needs and personnel capable of utilizing the system in place. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree  
Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) -Need to increase Alternative schooling for at risk students. Biggest Need we have.
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) The needs of our students is high, and the staff to help them is low as I know (I'm a school psychologist) funding options, training and support for teachers is needed and desired. School based mental health services is greatly needed. $24 million is a great number. To start with.    Need more mental health providers to give comprehensive health. Attacks (seemingly) on our schools by legislators. How does community respect our schools if their leaders don't  Senators holding folks "hostage" with reform. We nee it, but not holding us hostage.   Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) Student Support Personnel   &  Increased Student Support Personnel  &  Training for Teachers We need to address attendance & truancy issues. We need policies with teeth Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019)     Social Workers at each & every school or more support personnel (aides) to assist staff. More school psychologists. Teach coping skills.  Identify troubled students early on   Resolve truancy @ elementary level Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) We do need (previous word was underlined) increased funding for support personnel and (pervious word underlined) counties need flexibility to hire the personnel they see need for. The school counselors is currently spread too thin. But the school counselor is (previous word underlined) the mental health professional for that school. They are also trained to work with students will social/emotional issues due to trauma. The House bill that required more psychologist did not (previous word underlined) mark sense.  1st of all, any forced hire means Another professional laid off.  2nd, If you decided to require more school counselors.
Roane Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) -increased funding recognizing that money doesn't fix everything by unfunded mandates also fail. - schools can only go so far without community support, so more robust community development is also desperately needed.  ? & allow " innovative" partnerships like CIS access the state and from PK through Adult.  Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree

Wood Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) communities in schools - schools should be like a "mini-city". Get needs met without having to leave (Doctor, counselor, physical therapy, ect.)   Support Personnel - Flexibility is important   Social workers at elementary level  Hire attendance personnel to call homes, make home visits  Teacher Training - As a teacher, I would like more training BUT (previous word underlined) training doesn't replace hiring PROFESSIIONALS who have studied their  content for 4-8 years plus experience. My concern is that the responsibility of social/emotional support will be put on teachers as "another thing to do" when Social/Emotional should be a foundation executed by trained professionals. At some point, a teacher needs the time to ...TEACH.  They have already legislated mandatory suicide education for students (Jamie's Law). Teachers were given NO TRAINING- on this but we are teaching about depression and suicide. We are NOT equipped. Art therapist in EVERY SCHOOL  Counseling session weekly for EVERY STUDENT as part of their school day. This should be standard.  Counselors being able to go into classrooms to observe students and work with the teachers and students,  Identify and support students who are victims of the opioid crisis Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Pleasants Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) + Funding  + additional support in order to help the students to be able to focus on learning rather than crisis. -finding certified professionals-create incentives so they will want to work into the school system.  - consistency is key in building relationships so employing enough counselors to have at least one at each school. Lessons taught to classes to help deal with emotional issues to all students and one-on-one to those who have experienced trauma or are in deeper need for the individual. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Parkersburg  (Blennerhasset MS - 03/25/2019) I like having more support staff in the schools. I am concern we will not be able to get certified psychologist, counselor, and social workers. *funding   More student support personnel Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Funding that could be used to pay for more positions at schools related to social/emotional health.  Communities in Schools is a great resource to have in elementary schools.   More Training for school employees on mental health related issues.

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) I agree, and I think something(s) must be done to address the social emotional needs of our students. I would like to see an alternative classroom funded and staffed by trained professionals (teacher/therapist) to work with habitually disruptive students with social and emotional problems that require special attention.  This would provide them with much needed support, while curtailing classroom disruptions.  Teachers will then be able to teach our "regular" education students will be able to obtain the education they deserve. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Being able to provide the extra outside support to help meet the social emotional needs of the students.  Teachers aren't trained to meet all of the needs required by individual student needs. More funding to provide full-time counselors in every elementary school.  Funding for certified employees. Give additional trainings to help teachers to be better prepared to meet the needs of the students.  Ex. Trauma         Food         Medical Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Mercer Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) We need people who are trained and accessible to students, not just teachers in her free time. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mercer Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Due to the poverty crisis and opiod war schools need more emotional support - guidance counselors are overwhelmed and ill-equipped to serve students suffering from mental trauma due to drugs/poverty.   Every school needs a full-time school nurse per increase in obesity, diabetes.... Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree    
Mercer Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) I love the idea of adding people in schools to help students with their emotional needs.  Kids come to us with so much baggage that sometimes the last thing on their mind is learning. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mercer Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Needs:  More social worker positions in school.     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Mercer Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) We need all of the research-based strategist staff (trained) that can be funded. This is not being taken seriously by legislators & those outside of school. Allow flexibility in scheduling & funding issues.    We need the personnel to handle the needs.  $ and more power. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
  Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Coordination with school & CPS or other agency - lengthy entry process.     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Mercer Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) We need increased funding for student support staff and the flexibility for counties/schools to identify individual school needs. If we don't provide funding for additional staff the challenge becomes/continues to be a hindrence to progress and academic achievement in which teachers are expected to address. Some type of increased student accountability similar to/modeled after Virginia's SDL testing. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) I like all of the policies.  We need more personnel in every school who is qualified to deal with severe emotional issues.  More counselors, social workers, and psychologists are needed.     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) More focus Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Adding additional funding to add more support staff to help w/ social emotional support.  I feel we need more Trauma informed Education - across the board - Teachers, Parents, community members, etc. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mercer Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Student support personnel are vital to our schools and students today! My concern is that teachers will receive training and be expected to "counsel" students on top of all other duties! Make student accountable for their education. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Note on #4.  No PBIS
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) "Training" for teachers needs to include all staff.  Every employee comes into contact with the students.  Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder Training must be a priority!  De-escalation techniques are applicable to most students! That services will be "part time" and split between schools. Every school needs an Autism mentor to ensure the educational success of ASD students in general ed classrooms! Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) The policy itself is a good policy, however the magnitude of which we need it is under-emphasized!  Our students come to school with so much emotional baggage!  We need extra personnell all year around.

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Cis funds definitely need put in place.              
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Every school needs a psychologist and social worker on staff. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) I believe tieing the community to the schools is very important with attendance and helping children in need.  I think flexibility for support personnel is important if the funding is available.  More funding is needed. Additional funding will be needed, and I am worried about finding that funding where the bottom line is the most important - The money to pay for these social supports is important. Social worker in every school.  Police officers in every school.  Attendance accountability or CIS in every school. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Training for educators for things that might not be academic.  CIS - needs to be expanded.  Mental Health. I'm concerned about support personnel flexibility.  Funding! Electives  Afterschool Programs  Law Enforcement Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Teachers need to be trained to address the physical and emotional needs of students in our classes.  We also need full-time professional student support personnel.  These individuals needs to work at one school five days per week.  We currently have a school nurse who is rarely in the building because she also has to travel to at least 3 other schools during the school day. Make programs work for all students.  My son was not given counseling with KVAC last year even after my request, because he was a teacher's kid.  I was told he was a conflict of interest because I worked at his school.  He was having a really rough year - grades, acting out, social skills - and he was abandoned by the system. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Using the community in schools model will help bring those resources. Equipping teachers w/ the training is great, but you need those resources (people) to help those issues. Funding for PRO officers. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) I like increased social services.  I like increased funding for personnel.  I like PD for teachers in this area. They aren't big enough or detailed enough. A community schools model to make wrap around service a name? in rural areas especally - community health, dental, mental, addiction.

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019)       Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Our students need the support and counties need the funding to hire these support staff, training and additional support. Lack of individuals to fill the positions. Mandate all schools have a full time social worker, psychologist, etc. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
  Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) I'm in favor of increased student support personnel.  By increasing the number of personnel to deal w/ emotional issues, this would allow students to obtain assistance quicker.  This would also provide an opportunity to train teachers and facilitate communities in schools. By only training teachers to deal w/ emotional issues, this would add an additional role to the teachers that is in instructional & w/o additional pay. Provide funding to counties & allow counties to place additional student support personnel where the county deems needed. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Increase student support personnel  Additional funding for student support personnel  Increase social workers at every school  Provide teachers training on how to work with students dealing with trauma  Start making student be accountable for State Assessment Increase student support  Add social workers at every school Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Addressing the problem of having counselors (Full Time) to help with problems early on in school so the student can be all they can be. We need to address the problems that are area related - (Unemployment, Drug abuse in family). Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Increased student support personnel. Each school have a counselor per school. Increased Student Support Personal.  I'm a counselor and I feel that I have a big caseload of 466 children.  It is hard to reach every student.

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Community in schools.  It needs to be expanded to have resources available year-round. There is not enough time or funding alotted to adequately support many students. A better form of post-school day continued learning.  Many children do not have a home environment that fosters continued growth. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) They are needed.  Students today come to school with so many issues that interfer with learning.  We need embed supports on the school campus who can provide help and support at the time it is needed. My concern is that we would not have adequately trained staff.  These need to be professionals, not someone with one more job to do. Legislators should come to see what schools are like today, what kids are going through today, what principals  and teachers are trained to do. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Pipeline of well trained support personnel to fill the positions We should create a stand alone bill is needed for the social emotional supports. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) We as educators need more training in social/emotional problems.  We need more KVC reps with our schools to help with emotional problems, more funding is need for Social Workers & counselors.  We need school psychologist to be seen more with students in our building.  We need programs to address adults problems (Ex. drugs/alcohol)   PreK & age 3 childrens need to address emotional needs at our school.  Maybe we need to think of isolating these behavior students, so other regular educational students can learn.  It is very difficult for students to learn with all this disruptive behaviors. There needs to be some way to make sure parents give the childs medicine.  (CPS brought in & something done about it).  Traum? Sensitive Training needs to be offered to every teacher.  We need more Social Workers in our schools.  We need social emotional support on staff fulltime.  Backpack Blessings needs more support to reach more children. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
- Like that every school has different supports and flexibility.  - Teachers cannot do it all, need counselors, psychologists,  social workers - do not always know what the issues are for each student.  - must first address social emotional needs 1st, then academics  - Psychologist are spending time evaluating. not enough time to meet social emotional needs. Therapy in the schools - hand in hand at school so that forms can be done and access with /DHHR.   - communication in schools should be funded. Summer feeding  Where there is so many students in need, how do we address that as teachers.  Addressing opioid epidemic in the classroom. Behavioral specialist. Middle class also need support. professionals

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) This state needs more than a one-time infusion of funds to address the social-emotional needs of our students.  Each school should employ (at-least) one therapist that can provide direct services to students, similar to the clinic model used to address medical needs.  Funding these issues are of the utmost importance because our kids can't learn if they can't focus because of issues at home.  This must be a long-term investment, not a bandaid put on a gunshot wound.

McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019)       Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) More counselors are needed to better understand needs of the students.  Social workers are too few and far between, despartly needed. Neutral Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) This policy sounds supportive.  I wouldn't change much, possibly just add to it. Include the immediate family. Being one on one with the parents to make sure there is no confusion on what needs to be done. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Can have money, but still need the personnel to come to our school - a problem now - shortage of therapists. We need more therapists/counselors at each school fulltime.  The counselors we have are stretched way too thin. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
          Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
McDowell Welch  (Mount View HS - 03/19/2019) Community in schools being funded for the complete school year.  Counseling services provided each day. The proper amount of funding to implement support programs. Support systems during the summer and afterschool for student and parent/guardian - grandparent/foster parents Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Providing funding is a start , but we need to increase that funding. We need not only provide positive support for our students, we also need to develop relationships with caregivers. Every school needs dedicated staff to focus on these needs. *Losing a middle school student this week (last two words underlined) to suicide, we desperately need more mental health providers in schools.  * We need more Art & Music programs for students because many use these skills as coping skills. Strongly Agree Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) -Lack of support for families(i.e. grandparents or extended family)  -Under staffed schools w/ social workers, nurses, psychologist, counselors  -There needs to be 1 or 2 of each for each school  (met shared throughout the county)  -Lack of teacher (school) & parent relationships Family nights (offer child care)  Meet w/ families on regular basis (not just P/T conferences)  Offer ? sessions for grand/parents (i.e. technology, schoology, Healthcare Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I feel that these ideas are in line with what our students in West Virginia are needing. I feel our legislatures need to spend time in our schools. Not for one day but a week to a month to actually see the types of behaviors are students are facing. Competitive wages to bring folks into the state to work with our kids  Increase PE or physical activity minutes into the schedule/curriculim Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Jackson Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) This is needed to help the students Forbes article stated student success is caring and relationship # 1 Correlation blt student success is caring and relationship w/ other teachers & adults: #2 parents WV is # 8 for bullying in the nation.

Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) - increased finding for student support personnel- social mentors, nurses, counselors make sure to get parent buy in for support services  -more support for kids in the classroom with behavior problems  *increase recess- particularly @ elementary level- studies show it improves student focus and achievement  * Lawyer in the School/Healthy Grand families - involve lawyers to help families. particularly grandparents raising grandchildren - stabilize custody   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Jackson Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) *Flexibility  *additional funding  *social services embedded in the schools. *Concerns that emotional support doesn't come at the cost of cutting positions. *include ACE questionnaire to PK screenings  * include specifically LGBTQ training to employees Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Added to #2 flexibility from school to school   Added a star to # 3
Clay Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) All of the ideas are sound.  Training for Teachers on trauma, ect., needs to start with the teacher training programs in college. (previous word is underlined) $ ! Will teachers/aides be cut for these positions? Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) flexibility to employ type-  Training for teachers & staff  Communities in school Would bringing in new staff cost teacher's positions?  Training year round/or ongoing - not just 12 hours funding for support-   All counties same $ support  - not based on county taxes  Always have funding @ full amount @ all times - we don't know when things will happen. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) flexibility, increased (previous word underlined) training esp. for ACES *follow through  *TIME -   training needs to be repetitive to help teachers become proficient in ACES or whatever counseling they need to master We need to require training for all educators on how to provide Gay Straight Alliance needs to be funded to deal with emotional/academic success of this part of school population. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Social/Emotional Support policy  - solid ?  - need more staff in the building -Staffing needs to be top priority (previous two words underlined)  - Staff are educated & trained to do job if they are allowed to do so Counselor is student Ratio   250 : 1  85% student report counselors get to know students compared to 67% at higher ratio (300 : 1)  * attendance ratio 0.3%  18 points up SAT Math  19 points up SAT verbal  16 points up writing     Comm. w/ elementary counselors   70% graduation rate higher 90%  w/o elementary counselors  45% graduation not ? 90%  STATISTICS EXIST  *data: www.schoolcounseler.org/effectiveness* Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mercer Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) * More training for teachers there is so much to learn about traumas - science, the brain, etc  * Student Support Personnel we desperately need more funding - Nurses are spread so thin. Social Workers are desperately needed. Social Services Embeded in schools - instead of adding social workers (DHHR based) we need a better communication system between DHHR & the school system More social workers!  More Nurses Somewhat Disagree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) Good ideas Already should have been in place training should be evidence based  & effective training for teachers to address behavior issues  support services knowledge about PCIT (worked wonders with children w/behavior issues) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Fayette Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) * keep Psychologists in Counties there are a lot of vacancies  * love support systems this is a need! * SAT - Elementary Schools need help with this process. Support systems would be wonderful to take over SAT. Because the jobs & responsibilities of SAT coordinator are exhausting usually Administrators or designee (which is a teacher often) do not have time to do this consislently /correctly.  Policys 2419 & 2510, SAT should be a job for 3-4 people in the County to track & monitor progress (policy 2419 & 2510) more mental helath needs not only just counselors but mental health counselors.  Social worker constantly avaliable for service emotional & violent students Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like the idea of more emotional support in schools because as a young adult transitioning into adulthood, I am in need of some guidance. Especially during my senior year. I like how this lady said trauma training helps her see why kids might snap during class.   I think the community idea is really good, however not a lot of people care enough which is sad to say. There can be very positive community support if we sort of "advertise" it with more compassion. We need more counselors and many different kinds. Support, guidance, emotional, scheduling. These could be broken up in anyway but they are needed. Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree More training for LGBT + related information for teachers and other staff. This should be required because it's a relevant issue today.

Mercer Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) All ideas are good. Counties need support systems in place so that teachers can teach those ready to learn. Mental Health is a hot topic. It NEEDS addressed however, I feel like other social emotional support needs will fall to the wayside and then antoher area will spiral out of control, like mental health has to date.   Train All staff from custodians - up (even Superintendents) if there are interactions then training is needed.  decrese school nurse to student ratios, counselors, etc. Staff are there but not enough to reach the needs - basic of students.  Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Teacher Training - will help teachers better understand what students are dealing with at home.   Increases student support personnel- more counselors servicing students less admin work. Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Mercer Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) To bring more counselors, social workers, psychologist on board. Will funding for support personnel take away funding for more teachers?

Monroe Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) No Mandates without proper funding! We need a Pro-officer in every school, a nurse, a counselor, a social worker, CPS, DHHR, Psychologist, Psychiatrist bring it all! We need training to identify the social & emotional problems so we can refer without being held responsible for extra duties, paperwork, and full back! No matter county numbers address what the students need! Meet the students needs meet the teachers needs! Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Increased student support personnel is very much needed in WV school systems today, because of the drug epidemic.   Training for teachers to provide this social-emotional support is important, because some students feel more comfortable talking to a teacher(rather than their counselor) because they have established a rapport with certain teachers. I would not(word underlined) want other school personnel positions to be cut (previous word is underlined) to provide the social-emotional support positions. Provide the additional funding necessary w/o cuts somewhere else.   Strongly Agree Somewhat Disagree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree

Mercer Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) I do like the second point giving the power to the county level. Every counties needs are different. I am concerned that the Focus of our schools has been moved from educating students, to everything else. Instead of having these services in the school, alternative paths should be provided.    Somewhat Disagree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Disagree Neutral

Monroe Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) Our state is in crisis. We need help w/our student population.  Teachers are trained to teach, they don't always have the skill sets to deal w/ individual students.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) All of the terms are important. Until the opiod & poverty in our state are addressed we will never be able to be successful. My concern is that the public needs to be better informed about the difficulties that teachers & service personnel face. Politicians should be educated about poverty & its effects on children.    Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree    
Mercer Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) Training for teachers - we deal with students with trauma and am not trained to do so.  All students I have - need emotional support Parental accountability for behavior and attendance.  A way to limit disruptions students are in the court system with no repercussions. Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree

Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) I agree we need more support personnel. However, School Nurses are the front line and usually the only health care provided our students see on a regular basis.   1986 ratio for school nurses k-7 1:1500. We see all students Prek-12th grade. We have over 1000 health care plans. We treat diabetes, seizures, severe allergic reactions, tracheotomy, suctioning, catheterizations, tube feedings, emotional support.  We are unable to find people to fill the roles of psychologist, OT, PT. Service jobs are also not being filled due to applicants not passing drug tests.

Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Teacher Training What about students with special needs? Teachers need to be better trained at working with addressing social emotional issues. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like the training for teachers as they can still fit in their curriculum with emotional support. This measure is very important as it can potentially save many lives. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I am in support of these ideas   Having at least 2 counselors in each school with at least one focused solely on emotional support.

Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) 1. I believe the utilization of increased student support personnel is a good idea. Many schools - such as Mary C Snow are faced with students that live in constant survival mode.  Students in such a situation are busy trying to survive tot see tomorrow's sunrise to worry with learning today's lessons in school.    2. teachers could we use some special training to help them deal with students that come from abusive backgrounds, opioids, single-parent households. The only concern I have is that there are not enough counselors in the school.  I can't think of anything. Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) Social Emotional Support for students w/ more counselors adding to the amount of time.  No avaliable psychologists  More classroom support personnel to take child where they're had a bad day  More support for school nurses  Support groups for foster parents, grand parents raising grand children.

Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) I like employing add'l support staff. Counselors, Psychologist and School Nurses. Need to look at the Aide/Teacher ratio. That School Nurses are frequently not considered Qualified to address mental health . Nurses are educated in mental health. Our 16,000 students in WV have been identified w/mental health issues and thousands more that are unidentified.  We need a School Nurse and Counselor in EVERY School.  More Nurses / Counselors for students.   Support for the staff - emotional to discuss demands of job. Down school personnel days off/attendance if have support. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Mercer Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) We must have social workers who can go into the homes & deal with the many problems. Social Workers also know how to make the contacts for services needed. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Fayette Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) It is headed in the right direction   * Social Workers trained to work with parents go into the homes in PK-2 areas.

Fayette Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) I think Increased Student Support Personnel is helpful. Psychologist, social worker can benefit troubled children. Woodrow Wilson in Raleigh Co does have a psychologist who comes in once a week which helps. I think teachers should be given information about troubled students but not the responsibility of handling thier circumstances Increase access to resources in addressing needs of students experiencing traumatic situations so that teachers can direct these students in the proper directions. Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) We MUST direct more money for wrap-around services for our students. Never before have our students been so at risk due to circumstances beyond their control - drug use by parents, being raised by grand parents / great grand parents, divorce, etc.  Schools are NOTHING like they were even ten years ago. Basic needs must be met before learning can take place It was a good start. Funding to place social workers, psychologists, nurses in every school would be the improvement Additional teacher/service training dealing with childhood trama, etc.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Increased student support personnel (previous 4 words underlined) - we need so (previous word underlined) many more. Our students are coming from high-poverty households w/ drug abuse, ect. They are coming to school w/ PTSD. They need a lot more support than we can support. Real ( previous underlined) training for teachers to deal with ACEs - actually authentic real training that isn't a video or just a few - hour session. Hands on, real training sessions.  Give counselors time to counsel - not administer testing or scheduling. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wyoming Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) All componets would make our system more successful.

Wyoming Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) - Increased traing for teachers - often not prepared to handle social/emotional needs.   - Extend trainings to include service personnel - they spend a lot of time with children   - More support within the school for students - counselors within the building Funding - where will it come from? Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Increased student support personnel- yes!  Training teachers in Adverse Childhood Experiences is a good thing as long as it's a good training.  Embedding Social services in schools! Good. "flexibility" to hire support staff- what does that mean? Makers me nervous. Bring in test coordinators to do testing instead of having counselors do it. Strongly Agree Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Mercer Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) Teachers & Service employees need to be trained to reconize adverse childhood experiences. School Counselors, Nurses, Social Workers need to be in schools more.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) Increased student support I think we can build on the programs we have - Kevin Dill, Barr Method for transitions, FMRS, etc., to bring into the schools LSIC can be more effective.  How many people miss a full day of school for an appointment that could be fulfilled by wrap around services at the school?

Working on shoestring as it is.  * Claims this will be funding but what if a smaller county can identfy a larger need than what it is funded for.  Teachers do not need more training - the resources should be placed in the school so the teacher can teach.  More funding could utilize w/DHHR & other programs.

Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I really like all of Therapists should be in schools. We, as students, should have access to psychological help. Maybe finding the right people to help students -I believe that instead of repeatedly suspending students for disciplinary infractions, we should help them try to figure out what made them do that and figure out what type of emotional help they would need.  -emotional support animals  -I just believe that school should be a place where it feels as if it's a second home.   Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree

Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) -Teachers need to be trained in emotional/trauma/behavioral intervention for the sake of all of their students.  -Students need to feel safer in school (because they may not outside of school)  -   Schools should not be penalized for discipline  Older/Younger students "Buddy  Encouragement/Mentoring System"  Pair younger kids with older kids and use it as encouragement    Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) Like all of the ideas  Need more counselors - 1 counselor , 1 school nurse in every school. A mental health counselor / social worker is needed 1 in very school. Training 1 School nurse & 1 mental health / social worker in every school. CPR / First Aid required for all teachers, not just aides & special ed. teachers. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree For question 2 under indicate position they wrote "school nurses"
Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) I like increased student support personnel because some of our trauma students need to be pulled out and given sensory supports. Classroom teacher cannot do this, so having a PT to do sensory activities to get these students ready to learn would help a lot.      Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wyoming Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) I am a fan of all portions of the social emotional supports. I feel that extra training for teachers and allowing the specified individuals the opportunity to stay at one school rather than moving would be so very beneficial. Even in small schools, there are needs that students have that nurses or psychologists could help much more effectively than a teacher.  funding Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) *meaningful training for school personnel-specifically trauma informed care/education , positive behavior support  * increased social support availability to students-what does this look like? Should be the professional having direct, consistent involvement     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wyoming Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) I like each aspect of the policy. Our schools need more support personnel in active roles working with students. Training for teachers would be beneficial because we have students in our classrooms who have experienced major trauma. Mental health must be addressed before any aspect of education can occur. A student can't focus on learning equations if trauma has occured and consunes their mind.  Funding sources because of the additional positions required. Locating a funding source that is ling-term and reliable.  Improve communication with DHHR.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) They were excellent ideas from some of the professions on the frontlines everyday & community members who wish to be part of a solutions 1) More social support for caregivers in a community.  2) More employees to be in community settings where solutions are addressed. Provide the employees to reach the students emotional needs & to direct their career path. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Raleigh Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) Training for teachers is essential! If we are fortunate enough to receive extra support staff would be excellent. However, even if we have the extra staff teachers need to be receive extra training on how to prevent/and handle emotional issues. Not only just lecture but hand on resources.  Clear set of rules for roles. Education for parents and community for helping students w/emotional problems Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Clay Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) *Community Schools and wrap around services are needed!   *More counselors are needed, (and not just for scheduling)!  *More parental involvement is needed.  *More creative ways to meet student needs via community participation.  I feel like some of these issues were "paid lip service."  We need real reform, in these areas.   Strongly Agree Somewhat Disagree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Added this to question #3 - We need mandates to make sure it gets done.
Greenbrier Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019) * More mental health is there but need more   * need federal funding to be increased to help with counseling  * Trauma specialists  * Funding - Funding - Funding - is needed  * Trained in Adverse Childhood Experience Score  *  * Address problems about how we deal w/these problems Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Fayette Beckley  (Woodrow Wilson HS - 03/21/2019)       Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I believe our schools need many more)last two words are underlined) support personnel- in all (previous word is underlined) special ed, resource, and pk, k and 1st classrooms. These personnel will allow teachers to focus on teaching while still supporting the needs of all students. More counselors, and psychologists are vital, but their roles really need to be defined. Less testing students, way more direct student interaction. Support staff is so (previous word is underlined) important! There should be no self-contained classrooms in WV without a staff aide, regardless of size. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I love the idea of increasing social and emotional support for students. Happy students are eager to learn. Communities in Schools is a great idea. They can provide support to schools. Increased student support personnel isn't the same thing as having an increased support personnel using the right strategies to help support students with social emotional issues. Provide more support services to the family as a whole and not just the student.   Use more corrective actions instead of punitive actions to address social/emotional issues that lead to discipline issues. Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Neutral Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I attend a school that has most of these supports and it is an asset for any school. I agree with all the ideas listed. I'm concerned that there is not enough support in every school. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) We are in desperate need for more emotional support personnel also-actual guidance/career counseling    I really like the idea of "training for teacher" One of the folks in my discussion group suggested that this also include parents. I hesitate because as a classroom teacher I balk at "one more thing."   Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Neutral  
Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) *We definitely need more mental health specialist w/in our schools  *Community Schools are an excellent resource and when used correctly they are proven to be successful in improving student achievement as well as community engagement and the welfare of the ENTIRE community.  More positions!!  Ask students for what they need! More funding changing t he formula so there are more professionals Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Added this to #1 & community schools site coordinators   Added this to #2 More flexibility to have more but schools need a requirement to have them.
  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I liked them all. However, I would hope that by the end of the forums and in the final report each of these topics would be expanded on to better fits the needs of the students and teacher/support personnel You must include the "Whole" student by including his/her immediately address the "whole" students needs.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) -needs of students are very important!  -psychologist and other personal support jobs are 100% necessary.  - funding for emotional support has the possibility to improve overall health.  -education for people in professions that help students   - needs need to be tailored to students     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) -take in the needs of children  - psychologist available for support  - funding emotional support  - students need to feel comforted and safe  - students need to be emotionally invested Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019)     Need to address the emotional problems that occur when a student is falling behind, knows they are falling behind, and can't find anyone to help them. Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Neutral  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) *Partner w/ community services - non-profits, churches, community colleges ect. to provide wrap around services to kids and families.  *Smaller class sizes (previous words were underlined) / more counselors!!  * More funding for support services Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree

Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) All of them, especially student support personnel & training for teachers We need to make sure that students emotional needs are net first. (previous word was underlined) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Our students need emotional support now more than ever. Teachers, depending on grade level, can support but it isn't enough. My concern is that some of the support suggested and included didn't  allow enough local contextual ligation, We don't (previous word was underlined) need more resource officers - we need ( previous word was underlined) more psychologist and social services.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Imbedded social services  support services -counselors-psychologist-social workers-medical   Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Embed social support in schools-Community outreach     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Putnam Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) +wrap around services provided  +counsels-student counseling time increased  +adding SROs to schools  +more training opportunities for effectively meeting students social/emotional needs   +increased aides for classrooms  This was the best part of the entire bill! Providing all these wonderful services will require significant funding. A funding source needs to be identified and these initiatives need to be a priority. 1 cent tax on soda/sugary drinks to be a dedicated funding source for social/emotional supports Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) They would help kids going through tough times How are the issues going to be addressed as well as trainings? Encourage teachers/counselors/ect. to go and introduce themselves more to the students to let them know they are there. Somewhat Disagree Neutral Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I am an active proponent of both increased student support personnel and training for teachers, because the reality is that not one solution alone will fix the problem. Not soley the presence of trained personnel is enough. There needs to be more outreach provided by said people.  OUTREACH (previous word was also underlines), not just holding a position, but pushing it's platform. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like that schools provide counseling opportunities to students. I'm concerned that students aren't getting adequate help with their issues. Programs should be expanded to go our to hurting students (so students don't have to go to them). Jobs & positions for social workers should be expanded to be more individualized.  Students' mental health should be more important than grades. In other words, before focusing on academic performance, focus on health. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I really liked the Social Emotional support policy idea that provided funding for social emotional health. What about people in nuclear homes, public schools need to have quality education above all else Increase behavior support
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like the idea of training for teachers. I think that it's very important for educators to know how to deal with the needs of each student. Currently, teachers don't know how to handle special needs and trauma students. With this, they would be better prepared to deal with student's needs. I sit in the classroom everyday and see the same students being punished everyday, and most have family issues and can't get help.  If the school hired psychologists & social workers, students can get counseling that their parents cannot provide.     Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Neutral Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like the idea of increasing training for teachers, as well as increasing access to support personnel in individualized schools. I think that it's important that teachers and students better know how to interact with all sorts of people, and that the needs of every individual one met the best of the school's ability. Neutral Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) -I like the student support personnel & the increased student support personnel b/c I believe that every schools needs certain things they can't get through general help   -I think there should be a "board" comprised on unbiased individuals w/ diff. perspectives to hire professionals based strictly on what's best for the school  (going along w/ student support personnel) Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) *Our schools are Not broken; our communities are struggling. The fallout of the opioid crisis is impacting our families tremendously.   *We need more counselors and psychologists!  *Teachers and teacher training programs Need guidance in addressing the social/emotional Needs of our students.   *Current counselors need to be able to perform counseling duties in the elementary schools, not teach classes all day.
Boone Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) All of the proposals on the info sheet are great & would benefit our students & schools Funding - who will pay for it?   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Putnam Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) +communities in schools- love (previous word underlined twice) wrap around services   + student support personnel - this would help provide additional support for our kids   +Increased student personnel  +Training for teachers - This Is A Must! (last 3 words underlined) we need to have this! ACES (previous word underlined) is a huge issue. These are all incredible, but $ is a concern as to how we fund it  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Extra Student Support Parenting Support   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Social & emotional support is a critical role - schools are already having (previous word was underlined) to provide these services & I'm glad to see that funding is becoming available and these needs are being addressed. Shortage of skilled professionals, lack of time for training.  Please explain thoroughly what "Communities in Schools" is  As always, the devil is in the details.   Food security -  free breakfast, free lunch, summer feeding programs in all schools.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree under #1 they marked out Communities in Schools
Jackson Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I think that this is an extremely important issue that our state is facing. We are seeing more and more children all the time needing this type of support. We really need support in all of our schools for mental health. My concerns or concern is, where is the funding coming from to support these support programs. County boards are already pretty strapped with funding as it is, so there would need to be more funding to counties.  Nothing that trumps what has been presented, but something else to think about food security for students.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Just in total reinforce the human right of being secure with basic human needs, so that learning may actually be an activity that kids can participate in. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) They are great ideas and I'm glad that they have been brought to light. Social qualifications/being able to relate to a student Reducing classroom size so that teachers get to know every student. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) There are good ideas for student support. The communities in Schools, Increased Student support personnel and training for teachers needs to happen.  Allowing flexibility to counties to employ the type of professional student support personnel needs to have a plan for regulating the process in which these positions are filled.   A committee was suggested. Start in the Elementary Schools. Give H.S. Counselors more time to spend in the classroom and less time pushing papers. Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019)       Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) - Strongly support the need for services (counseling, health, life skills, emotional support, occupational focus, ect.)  Training for teachers and service personnel to deal with ever changing conditions that impact student achievement. Can't stress need for more social services to support health and well being of our students Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I agree with implementing more counselors, social workers, and psychologist into the school system. Right now all of our schools do not have enough of these positions. Having outside school resources such as psychologist that can come to schools and provide services to our students. I believe that we need to follow the counselors recommendation of having 1 counselor for every 250 students. Psychologist are being used mostly for testing students and they do not have the time to focus on other tasks, I fear that if counties are given the option they will choose psychologist which will not impact the daily school environment.  Parent accountability for attendance and other student issues. For example students with poor attendance - have parents go to trainings of some sort -  possibly have Medicaid fund some of these Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Most of the ideas sound good as long as other positions aren't cut! Fully fund all(previous word was underlined) positions.  Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Training for teachers  Increased student support personnel  Student support personnel making sure it is based on a # of students needs, not just who a person think they want.

  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Communities in Schools - yes  Teacher support personnel - yes  Teacher training is key because we are on the front-lines of flagging what is happening. * the correct services must be assessed in appropriate manner. please consider emotional support animals in addition to "people support." Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Putnam Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I think the unions and teachers were foolish for speaking out against the Bill because these were all good things for the school system. I am concerned about the communities in schools and what access they may have to students whose parents Don't want their invo -Training in the schools for parents for IEP's so that they know what they can ask for, what they are entitled to.  -Opt out of all community in school services. I would not want my children participating in those services. Somewhat Disagree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Jackson Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) * I support the provisions to increase the number, and funding for, the support personnel needed to address student needs.

(pervious word was underlines)  *Do we have enough qualified individuals to fill the positions needed to support students.

Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree two !! after #4 strongly agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) *I think this is one of the most important aspects of a students life.  *More counselors this is so important. the most important person you should meet in high school should be the counselor educating more supplement staff about issues with students and steps to take to get them proper help  train teachers in areas based on grades for disorders. such as sensory processing disorders and dyslexia Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) *Increased support personnel is critical to addressing the effects of the opioid crisis on students *Flexibility in support personnel will make it too easy to rob Peter to pay Paul.     Somewhat Disagree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I feel all ideas are a benefit the students. Providing support for at risk/traumatized youth helps not only that student but society as a whole.  After handle with care program throughout state  Require trauma bused training for teachers.  ask teachers for their needs Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Boone Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) need for counselor of social works is a must but they must work with the staff at of students. Not in an office. They must be with students all (last word was underlined) the time.

  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019)     One Wish for WV Schools  #4 Trainings have been provided; however we still don't have enough personnel to implement treatment needed.           
Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Very little - With the opioid crisis & other issues our children are suffering - as it is school is the only support system so many of our children have. If we are their only Support we need to Be that Support. Meet all the needs food/clothing/emotional Support/Physical Support. Not enough - Recognize the schools are often (last word was underlined) Parenting the Schools. Streamline the Sped Process -  let teachers teach & weigh in on the needs of the students. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) emotional support animals in schools to help with emotional stress   emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and in some cases, restorative justice as an alternative to OSS, as well as some case of tss.  Emotional support animals Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Communities in the school  Health clinics  Giving counties choices in what job to fill - we need to fully fund all positions More support for students & teachers Strongly Agree Strongly Disagree Somewhat Disagree Strongly Agree
  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Much needed-take it seriously   Work with higher education in training new teachers Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree To question #3 As needed  To question #4 esp. for new teachers
Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) ? Support Specialist: Lived & ? Learned Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Neutral
  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Training for teachers preparing teachers for what students are experiencing is so very beneficial to understanding their learning barriers. Increased student support personnel would provide additional support for the students. I would hope they could also provide some support to parents as well.     Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) It is a "need" which needs to be addressed The funding needed for this will not be there and will not have the support that is needed to see this through You will need to adjust the grading/grade levels to allow for healing of the social emotional services as that take time which the schools already don't have enough of (time) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree You need to heal the child to allow the learning
  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) These are great ideas. Especially counselors/social workers/ect…  There staff positions should be in every (last word was underlined) school, & state funded.  Staff training is better spent spread thru out the year not loaded up at beg, or end of year just to meet a requirement.          Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) The Social Emotional Support policy ideas presented were a definite good step in a positive direction. I agree with all of these concepts.  What will the over sight look like to ensure programs are implemented and followed. - school safety  - greater teacher training  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I am a strong proponent of all of them, But I see them as first steps to a much needed re-vamping of how we address the socio-emotional unmet needs of our students. I don't have concerns with the policy, other than the suggestion of a policeman/woman at every school. Please address the trauma and mental health care needs before students become violent.  A public/private, collaborative address to the kids affected by the drug epidemic. Please break down your silos.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Increased student support in schools - needs to be more direct - not just "more."  There should be at least one counselor in every (participant underlined previous word) school.    Teachers need training in issues that are becoming prevalent so they know steps to follow, what to and what not to say, etc. ideas were too general - specific ideas and numbers are needed.  There also needs to be delineated # based on grade levels Provide support for the staff as well - training as well as follow-up support when having dealt with a crisis.   Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
  Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Love more counselors & psychologist in schools. We are drowning with the number of students with aggressive behaviors that impact their learning & learning of others.  massive shift in understanding of Trauma Sensitive schools. we have to balance social w/ academic at all levels.  Address the trauma, drugs and violence/neglect! A generational plan to lower the ACES in our communities.  Legislators need to connect any subsidies collected for children need to have accountability related to school attendance/tardy. We can have significant impact if student not there or arrive 2 hrs late daily.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) We need at least one full time counselor at every school especially elementary.  We need a plan so that social workers/educators/administrators and support staff can decide what to do - create a protocol.  We need more support staff - a respite team so that kids have some place therapeutic to go - not just punishment. Not enough - not enough money, staff, more social workers and psychologists who work together to create a plan for the kids.  Right now there isn't a plan. More staff  - therapeutic respite answers.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) That it was addressed at all.  Thank you! Lack of percentage attached to school counseling direct contact time.  Some administrators will take advantage of vague language to use counselors for (very) non-counseling tasks. Follow the Am. School of Counseling Assoc. guidelines of 250 students to 1 counselor.    Some counselors are 1000+  to 1. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Our schools are in great need of counselors and social workers to address the opioid epidemic and children living in trauma/poverty.   The need is only growing, but I am concerned that we would lose teachers we desperately need.  This needs to be funded separately.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Yes, Yes, the students need additional help.  They are dealing with issues we cannot (participant underline previous word) comprehend!!  Provide the funding through the State (participant underlined previous word).  The counties shouldn't have to choose between counselors and teachers. That the funding for these professionals will become the responsibility of the county.  That professional will count toward the number of professionals the counties are allocated to have, so the choice for the county becomes teacher or counselor.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Extra funding for counselors and social workers to provide support for students that have emotional and behavioral problems.  They can provide support for the teacher, the student and the family. We need additional funding for students with social and emotional problems. More training for teachers and service personnel on how to work with students with social, emotional and behavioral issues. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Funding for counselors/social workers.  More student support personnel.  Training for Trauma.  Flexibility in funding for emotional support. Communities in schools.  School service personnel costs. More training for trauma students.  Fostering students/opioid issues.  Grandparent education on how to work with school system. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I like allowing flexibility to counties to employ the type of professional personnel that meets the needs of the students in that school.  this coupled with the training of teachers would allow to better meet the "whole child." I am concerned that even if we provide funds for Support Programs that the power that be will continue to have rules and regs, reports, etc. to hinder the effectiveness we might otherwise obtain. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Communities in schools - fantastic idea.  Student support.  Increased student support. All of the topics are good ideas and thoughts but mean nothing without the funding to back them.  My current school counselor serves 4 schools.  she is at my school 1 day a week if she is not pulled to other schools or trainings.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Increased support is the (participant underlined previous word) most critical need.  How can you tell an 8-year-old in distress to wait until tomorrow.  And their distress affects the whole class.  A full time counselor in every (participant underlined previous word) school, that school, is critical !!! The training for teaching is (?) in  theory.  I find it will only be used to expect them to fulfill the role of other support staff.  They need to be teaching. The achievement of all (the participant underlined the previous word) students suffers when there is emotional trauma in the classroom.  Schools need to be able to hire staff to provide support at any individual school level. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) More wrap around services - counselors, social workers.  Communities in schools - great.  Training for teachers - great but...... So wrap around services do not become bogged down w/"administrative duties"  Communities in schools - Funding.  Training for teachers can "bog down" teachers and take away from teaching responsibilities. Support Services - Social workers - is degree standard necessary for the jobs?  Can that be obtained once in a job?  That would help with finding people to fill spots.  Smaller class sizes. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Flexibility in employing support staff - Every school is different and has different needs.  A school should not be limited and have to decide what they need more.  WE NEED FULL TME COUNSELORS, NURSES and psychologists. The social-emotional needs developed by the opioid epidemic are not being addressed in a practical manner. Behavioral Specialists (participant underlined previous two words) to come in work hand in hand with teachers and admin to develop behavior plans, help implement and review.  Work with parents as well.  Help grandparents with raising their kids. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019)   I'm concerned there isn't enough support allowed for, in the form of dedicated counselors to a single school, dedicated social workers to schools with higher poverty rates. Instead of charter schools, take 4 of the lowest performing elementary schools in the state and staff them well (participant underlined previous word).   (?) nurse, social worker, counselors and decrease class sizes and let the results talk for themselves. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Redesigning schools to better accommodate the needs of our students is paramount.  flexibility to counties to employ professional student support is crucial.  We need additional funding and support. None. Teachers need professional development to better identify and meet the needs of the students they serve. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I was glad to see that at least the need is finally being acknowledged.  In this state burdened with poverty issues and or a great drug addiction problem, we definitely need more social emotional support for our children living with these issues. Wording - it is all in the wording.  Just to say "We will improve the support" is too vague - could be only by three counselors. Every school needs a minimum of one counselor on site everyday.  Children in elementary school don't always have their crisis on Monday's. Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Love the idea of adding more social services.  Love allowing counties flexibility to choose the type of professional (more counselors, social workers). Adequate funding.  Training. Update SAT process. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like that more emphasis is being place on community aspects of schools. I also like the added flexibility and note we need more funding. Just concerned that Kanawha County will get increase it needs and it not just be a reallocation of resources.  Increase lawyers in schools in schools across the state. Program is in Mary C Snow and Grandview.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Communities in school - only (participant underlined previous word) if funded.  We already do a lot of this and none of us are trained for it.  We need dedicated staff for this so teachers and admins can serve their primary function - teaching children.  Support-sure but we need all (participant underlined previous word) of the in my school. Training for teachers.  Some around management and deferral yes, but they need to teach.  We need dedicated personnel to handle these needs. Come see Explorer Academy.  We address SEL through a curriculum and crew structures.    Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Disagree 1. Only if funded and we get staff to do it.  4. No to PBIS.  We use restorative justice and responsive classroom models.
Putnam Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Student support personnel - school psychologists.  More! More! More! More! Every school needs a dedicated school counselor.    Each county needs a psychologist that can meet with students - Not everyone has the ability to seek professional help outside the school environment.  Behavioral specialists are needed at the professional level.  DHHR at the schools. Students need to be at school EVERYDAY.  More personnel for social emotional - students can't truly learn until these things are addressed.  Trauma informed care.  Afterschool program / Afterschool Programs - Services need to be brought tot he school. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like that they want to add more student support personnel to the schools. This is definitely something that is vital for successful education.  * Hold parents accountable  * Offer more training to teachers and parents Teachers have been trained to recognize certain behaviors caused by the student going through a traumatic experience, but how do we take the correct approach to help those students/  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Increasing support personnel in all schools this is a great need. I believe that if social emotional supports are provided first and foremost, all other problems in our education system will fall into place.  I'm concerned that these needs are not being met now and our need is increasing dramatically with the opioid crisis and trauma that kids are living with.    Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Need more student support personnel! Classes are disrupted and learning is hampered by students w/ emotional/mental issues.  School based counselors that are full-time (participant underlined previous word) - so students can be helped when (participant underlined previous word) the student needs them - not 3 days later on rotation.  Counselors that are available for when teachers need them - so teachers can teach. Teacher support - counseling for them.  Direct student support at county level (intervention by specialists) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Lincoln Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Lincoln County has a high incidence of trauma - exposed children, poverty and disability who have multiple needs.  These needs must be met in order for learning to occur.  This includes child nutrition, physical needs, medical/health related, emotional/behavioral.  Teachers cannot be expected to attend all of these and then focus on academic programming for increased achievement.   More! More! More! help please.  Increased student support personnel.       Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree 1. Don't fully comprehend.
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Spend money on getting all children to come to school each day.  Come to school each day on time. Student/teacher ratio needs to be lower so we may spend time with more students 1 on 1. Spend money on any kind of after care program (tutoring) etc., summer Programs to catch kids up.
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Counselors, social workers, nurses in schools.  Student support personnel.  Training for teachers in ACE's. Not including personnel for all schools. emotional support for teachers/personnel. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Real training for teachers that meets the needs for trauma, drug epidemic, etc.  More support - but from people who know the kids and are full time in the building. I'm afraid the effort to save money might not bring in real help. Emotional support people need to be people who are in the school everyday (participant underlined previous word).  Bringing in strangers the students don't know and who don't know the students is not helpful.  We already have Prestera and that isn't helpful.  Parents are reluctant to give permission. Somewhat Disagree 1 - More counselors, not social workers.
  Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Flexibility.  More attention to student emotional, physical needs.  More counselors in every school.  Need social/emotional supports are a great need for all students.  Increased funding for support personnel - every school should have their own nurse.  Training for trauma, behavior (?) Concerns that qualified counselors be in every school, not only professionals that will not be accessible to students and teachers every day.            
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) We are in dire need of student support Personnel. Students have mental health issues now, that we haven't  seen before. We need (participate underlined the previous word) counselors, psychologist, & social workers to help us.      Schools are too understaffed. Kids are expected to come to school & learn-hard to do with drug epidemic, depressed economy, ect.  - Hold parents accountable  - Parenting classes  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) All of these ideas are crucial to a student's well-being and ability to learn.  Without a support structure at home, the school needs to supply these structures. At this time, no concerns.  Be prudent (participant underline the previous word) in your decisions. Smaller class sizes to have ability to meet more one-on-one with students.  Make standards developmentally appropriate for the child's age and development.  Remove regulations that stymie the classroom teachers.  Allow them the freedom to teach as charter schools do.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Teachers need training on how to work w/students in trauma.   Teachers can't be social workers and counselors but they do need to be trained on how to best teach students in trauma. Every elem school needs social worker, nurse, counselor.  Larger elem schools and secondary schools may need to do this on ratio. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree This session was taken off-topic by a home-school rep in the group.
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Increase counselor and nurses. I want to be sure they are employed by the county.  They need to invested in the students and students need to know them.  (?) in schools will not help. Do not out source the mental health professionals.   Service personnel need training to help a student experiencing trauma.  Bus drives see this child first and can alert the school. Neutral Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I like the idea of getting support for our children, and it needs to be funded.  it can not be mandated and not funded. Funding needs to be done.  We also need money for interventionist. I think we need to make class size reductions.   We need to improve SAT process. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree These services need to be fully funded by the state.
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like the discussions about adding more funding for mental health. However, they have only resulted in discussions.  schools are understaffed and overwhelmed. Schools need to be provided with a counselor per 250 students at least. Policies also need to be created t hold parents accountable for attendance and tardies.  Parents need to held accountable.  Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Flexibility.  Psychologist for each school. Behavioral specialist.   We need to help and fix the students emotional needs. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Teacher get fair pay for all we ask of them.
Lincoln Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I like the idea of increasing support.   We need more social; counselors; allowing student support personnel.  Increasing student support.  Training for Teachers and Aides.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Putnam Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Definitely need INCREASED STUDENT SUPPORT PERSONNEL (more students with more problems).  More training for teachers regarding students with emotional/behavioral needs.   How do we get more parental/community involvement in schools? Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I like the idea of having social workers, but keep them true to their positions and not given administrative work. I would love to social workers, but the need to be funded.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Training for teachers - especially when it comes to kids with challenged personality traits, autism, ADHD, etc - great need for this. Need more counselors to share the load. Neutral Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) - more training for teachers in the classroom when emotional concerns come up.   - Forensic teacher, we are starting the drug toxicology unit. I had two students to look @ me today and say "Proctor, I might not be able to handle this, my parents are addicted and I have to deal with it."  - Student comes to you and says "I have no where to go tonight, can you help?" - We need more than just counselors. We need family specialist @ schools especially low income areas. The above statements are an everyday thing @ several schools.  - Hold parent accountable. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Extra support personnel is great!! Extra training for staff is great, because we aren't trained to handle the situations our children are facing. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) We need to let counselors do their job. none really.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I think that the general proposal are a good starting point. I don't think that they go far enough.  There should be a nurse in each school, all day, every day.  we need counselors who are more specialized to a communities unique circumstances and needs. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Having flexibility with local control. Professionals time with children.  More training for teacher training. Increase funding for social workers/counselors.  Make counselor ratio 250-1.  Minimum for each school - 1 per school.  Parental education for lead guardian. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) That student support was even on the radar. Not specific enough.  No interest in additional funding for positions. Counselors 1:250.  Organized response with various professionals in county and community.  Lower ratio would free teachers to teach.  More nurses, psychologists, etc. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Trauma Training for teachers to help better support students.  Additional support for students emotional needs. No concerns. Provide more classroom instruction by counselors. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) More training  for Professional services (mental health) More Mental Health - School Psychologist, counselors ect.  Training for teacher for behavior management Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Putnam Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Its a start.  Testing and standards need removed and allow teachers to teach.     Neutral Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree But add charter schools and ESA's.   
Lincoln Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) The addition support for Trauma Training and professional Support personnel Will we find enough people to provide the services.  Do we have enough counselors or social workers. Long term approach to fixing the problem.  Start big with the elementary schools funding. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wayne Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Each of these questions need to be fully funded.  No exceptions.  This is where academic achievement begins! (participant underlined previous word)   Smaller class sizes.  Law enforcement in all high schools Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Wayne Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Any additional social or emotional support will be of great benefit to students.  If we don't address the basic problems a student faces outside the classroom, that student won't be able to learn in a classroom. My concern is these services are over cooked. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
  Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Communities in schools need funding.  Student support personnel need more help for mental health needs. Not enough trained personnel.  More wrap around mental health. Try more innovative approaches to alternative education and provide resources, for example, Mountaineer Challenge Academy. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Funding for additional counseling and student social services. Not enough funding for nurses to provide schools every day.  Additional funding to DHHR/CPS/social workers.  Nothing in bill to address 3pm to 7am issues. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
  Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Funding in the school aid formula is great, but how will that attract more college grads to become counselors? A deeper form of counseling is needed.  More intense training for our surmounting emotional problems that our students have.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) - Allowing counties to hire more student support personnel & provide funding for it - Provide more training for teachers regarding trauma, opioid epidemic, ect. - Counselors should be 1:250 (recommended ratio) - psychologist, social workers need to be doing more therapy - less diagnosing  - more training + more student support = higher achievement Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Communities in schools - Yes!  Student support personnel - Yes!  Increased student support personnel - definitely!  Training for teachers - Hallelujah! Definitely need to expand more aides in all classrooms not just certain core subjects.  Why would a therapist who could make 75kor more annually come to public schools and make 40k? We must pay for quality. Need more counselors and therapists in school.  We need counselors whose only responsibility is emotional needs of students. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Putnam Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) Allowing flexibility to the county on what they need. Increased funding for those trained. Not sure exactly what this refers too.  Every school NEEDS a full-time counselor or psychologist for that school.  Neutral Somewhat Agree Somewhat Disagree Somewhat Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Our students at such young ages have seen more than most adults.  We need to give them the support that they need to overcome the obstacles they have already faced.  Spending more time with our students than family we see the daily struggles these children face. We need a support system and need to educate the students that need support to function as adults. Nurses needed at every school for so many reasons (medical, testing, loss of instruction time). Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) This policy gives students the opportunity to have their needs met.  Counselors and teachers are carrying too much of a work load making the needs of students to not be met.  As children in schools reach an older age, they find it harder to find a teacher or counselor to talk to.  Unlike elementary, they are not with the same teacher all the time. Make students more aware of where they can go. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Our students desperately need additional services and support.  There are more medical needs of our students (ie - diabetics, seizures).  There are more emotional and behavioral issues but currently there is little to no support for them.  Social emotional training for support staff to assist students.  Students cannot reach their full potential academically I their basic needs are not met.    Additional Counseling/Mental Health.  Include policy in separate legislation not (participant underline previous word) one for all bill. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Increased student support personnel. Not enough (student and support personnel) Social workers - in all schools at all times. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Like: Student Supt. Personnel - Flexibility in counties.  Why: because counties/communities have similar but more importantly, different student needs.  We are in a difficult time - and schools must adapt and change.  Like: Training for teachers - teachers will be better prepared to deal with a changing student body.  Will help reduce compassion fatigue.  Make teachers better partners with special support staff.    Like: more community partnerships.     Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Putnam Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Teacher training and support for students. Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) -more training for teachers to handle trauma fueled situations; we know how to identify the trauma, we need next step practices. -that there is an or for funding between psychologist or counselors. We need both. -there is fear over our students' needs & if we are providing all that we can for them.  -Trainings for parents as accountability.    Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Kanawha Charleston  (Capital HS - 03/20/2019) I like every single aspect of the social emotional support provided. I believe we need them all, and I am glad - and hopeful - they are being included and considered. Concerns -  Funding and accountability. I believe providing all staff and student, at every grade level, with an understanding of what to look for and how to handle the warning signs of trauma, the after effects of trauma, the throes of trauma, cool down techniques, mindfulness (breathing) and character ed … I could go on for days!  Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019)   There needs to be a emphasis and focus of making the schools a part of the community. Provide a social outlet for the students that is controlled to meet the social needs. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) It was a start. The proposed legislation (24 million) worked out to provide 5-8 professionals per county.  Cabell alone needs 25+.  Attacking and addressing the impacts of poverty is imperative to pulling WV out of the depths of depression.  The legislation focused on getting some kids away from the problems without really solving the problems.  It was an escape hatch for the upper-middle class. How can DHHR and schools be more integrated? - DHHR service providers should be more directly available or involved in schools.  Help us provide wrap around services.  Provide opportunities for mental heal degree holders to attain social work licenses through working with the school systems.  Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I believe that we need more student support personnel in every school.  Students are changing and we need psychologists, counselors and social workers to help students to become more successful.    Students need to feel safe and be able to deal with emotions and behaviors properly before they can be expected to excel in a classroom.   I believe that teachers should receive additional training, but they should not be used in place of extra counselors, psychologists, etc... Increase funding for additional support personnel. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) They all play a role and can be helpful.  Training for teachers with flexibility to meet needs. Inadequate to the crisis.  Need a multi-faceted approach to societal challenges. Parent training and support. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Too much is pushed onto schools and the employees.  Outside help is needed either in home or clinic style to help parents/families.  Too much time lost in class/school day. Loads of teachers who are too busy now.  Need more counselors and less paperwork time for each counselor. Each school and county needs to be able to work on their problems/issues.  Different areas have different pressing needs. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Putnam Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) All the suggestions should be funded and supported. We need to address the gap between students and the services they need, such as therapy, that insurance is necessary for. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I'm most passionate about additional personnel.  I was a high school administrator in a former life and now as an elementary administrator I've seen more violent and disturbing behaviors than I ever did in high school.    too much "training" for teachers could take them away from their main job - to teach! Counselor ratio.  Out of certification hires for additional counselor support. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Wayne Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Increase student support personnel - Elementary issues manifest if not addressed.  Trauma informed practice - teachers are unprepared for students that are victims of drugs and trauma (emotional). There must be changes to the foster system.  These two things must go hand in hand.  Information has to shared and present for understanding.  Funding - must take care of the Parlov's before the Bloom's.  Headstart needs social support (pk). Address foster situation! group home? Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
  Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019)   The Social Emotional Support policy needs to be addressed in a separate bill.  It is crucial to address this issue before others can be addressed All schools need more support staff to deal with some of the emotional issues they are facing in the world today. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Putnam Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019)       Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wayne Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I agree with all these policies.  They are very needful in our school systems.     Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Putnam Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Added counselors. Counselors need to be counseling and not clerical work. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I like the policy ideas of student support personnel.  Our students need extra support to have their needs met. I do not have any concerns towards this policy.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Increased funds to counties for Social Emotional Support. Schools need more counselors, nurses, and therapists and not more resource officers. Let local school systems develop their own plans to meet the specific needs of students in their areas. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Wayne Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) We need to properly fund psychologist, social workers, parental assistance to help parents help their children. I think they look at one size fits all.       Somewhat Agree Somewhat Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) We need more support to deal with the issues these students are coming to school with. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Training for adverse childhood experiences for all staff and expanding support staff. More money for all these programs. More counselors, school psychologists, social workers, open contracts with university, outside supports. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) More money for counselors and psychologists.  Funding for aides for needy students. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Mason Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019)   Student-counselor ratio needs to be 256-1!   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Lincoln Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) The increased student personnel.  The idea to have a trained member staff.  As a teacher I don't have the skills to (?) or help with some of the issues that opens in my classroom. Lack of help.  Lack of training.  I have had training in trauma on (?) issue.  But I do not have enough time to know whats going on.  New teachers need help of going on when they walk into class.   Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Flexibility to employ the type of student support personnel needed. The need for more counselors, outside support, nurses. Training on how to address drug addicted students, "drug babies" and how to work with families affected by opioids. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) I think there is a need for increased support personnel - increased funding is vital.   There needs to be a designated (?) for number of students to counselor/psychologist/social worker that meets the recommendations by support personnel professional organizations. Provide extra resources to the under performing schools that may need the additional support due to the number of children who may be in crisis. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
  Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) Increased student support personnel. Trying to make teachers into nurses. None. I like all options. Somewhat Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Somewhat Agree  
Cabell Ona  (Cabell Midland HS - 03/18/2019) More support staff is needed to address s/e issues.  However, the support staff offered/hired needs to be trained appropriately.  Trainings to target S/E needs should be targeted towards all staff as each staff member will come in contact with each child and should know steps to take to address needs.   Need steps to address s/e needs of all children and especially target NAS children and their s/e needs. Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree Strongly Agree
