Governing Board Passes Resolution for School Safety and Mental Health

Tucson Unified School District prioritizes the safety and well-being of our students, employees, and community members, by providing safe and welcoming spaces and recognizing that mental health is a major component of school safety. We acknowledge that mental health is a major component of school safety and gun violence and that school counselors and social workers have the unique opportunity to instill hope and provide support that can lead to monumental changes in the lives of students through wrap-around services.

In support of this, the TUSD Governing Board passed a resolution at the January 28, 2020, board meeting to call upon the State Legislature and the Governor to allocate additional funding toward more mental health support in schools to lower the ratio of students to school counselors, students to social workers and students to school psychologists. The resolution also reaffirms our commitment to supporting students, staff, families, and community members by ensuring that it maintains supportive environments to nurture safety and well-being.
