The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a bright light on the critical need for school support personnel. This past week was National School Psychologists Week, and on today’s show we take the time to highlight the amazing work of our school counselors, psychologists, social workers, and more who are doing so much to help keep our school communities healthy and safe. NC has many incredible individuals in these roles, but as we also know that we can do much more in terms of investments and support to ensure that all students have access to the resources they need.
