District Spotlight: Committed to Wellness at Kirtland Local Schools

The Kirtland Local Schools have a strong commitment to the overall wellness of its school community. Staff, students, and families are coming together, now more than ever, to not only take care of others but themselves as well. In a partnership with the district’s Wellness Committee, numerous initiatives are being planned that will take place in classrooms as well as in homes. The Wellness Committee, which consists of members of the administration, staff, students, and parents, has met quarterly over the past few years. The committee looks for ways to promote wellness for all stakeholders, which aligns with the district’s strategic plan of “promoting healthy choices for students.”

ESC of Northeast Ohio’s Student Wellness Department Offering Handle With Care Training

The Educational Service Center of Northeast Ohio’s Student Wellness Department is offering free Handle With Care (HWC) training to its member school districts. There are multiple ESC Student Wellness Consultants that have completed the required training through Handle with Care: Ohio and have the ability to train local school districts and their corresponding first responders (police, fire, and EMS). Parma City Schools held a district-wide training session in October where Corcoran trained the high school staff while Papp trained the staff at the elementary school during Professional Development Day. There are four districts currently in different stages of the process that will aim to be completely trained by spring 2022: Parma City Schools, Richmond Heights Local Schools, Shaker Heights City Schools, and South Euclid Lyndhurst City Schools.  School districts interested in connecting with the ESC Student Wellness Department to learn more about their HWC training can reach out to [email protected] or [email protected]
