Virtual College Fair, September 13, Pre-Registration information

Due to COVID-19, our in-person College Night 2020 event is unable to be held.  As we researched virtual options for our Lee County students to reap the benefits of a college fair event in the virtual setting, it became very apparent that the NACAC Virtual National College Fairs provide our students with a very robust and personalized college fair experience.


What Can Students Expect?

  • Over 600 national post-secondary schools in attendance at each fair
  • FOUR different college fair dates, each fair event is 8 hours in duration
    • Students can schedule specific college presentations and info sessions of interest to maximize their time investment during the fair
  • NACAC Meet-Ups on a variety of college planning topics for students and parents to attend virtually
  • Students may pre-select the colleges with whom they would like to schedule a virtual one-on-one meeting at a specific date/time
  • Parents can attend with their student online and reap the benefits of these resources and conversations

Mental Health Awareness in schools and what it means for you and your child


Why is mental health important to education?

Mental health is directly related to children’s learning and development. It encompasses or intersects with interpersonal relationships, social-emotional skills, behavior, learning, academic motivation, certain disabilities, mental illness, crisis prevention and response, school safety and substance abuse. Each of these issues affects not only the success and well-being of the individual student but also the school climate and outcomes for all students.

What are school-based mental health services?

School-based mental health services include a broad spectrum of assessment, prevention, intervention, postvention, counseling, consultation, and referral activities and services. These services are essential to a school’s ability to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for all students, address classroom behavior and discipline, promote students’ academic success, prevent and respond to crisis, support students’ social-emotional needs, identify and respond to a serious mental health problem, and support and partner with at-risk families. Ideally, school-based services dovetail with community-based services so that children and youth receive the support they need in a seamless, coordinated, and comprehensive system of care.

School Mental Health Teams

School mental health teams (SMHT) are multi-disciplinary teams that will meet regularly (weekly preferred) to discuss students that have been identified with social-emotional or mental health concerns. The team uses data-based decision making to support student mental health through selective and indicated interventions. Well-functioning school mental health teams facilitate the maximum impact of a comprehensive school mental health system. They serve as the organizing structure for a tiered system of school mental health supports and services. High functioning teams capitalize on the multi-disciplinary resources within a school and community to achieve the greatest outcomes for students, families, and the school community.
