Kenowa Hills Public Schools district is committed to the well-being of students and staff. We recognize the importance of caring for the whole child and by extension, the whole family. In honoring that commitment, Kenowa Hills has recently partnered with Pine Rest to provide mental health support to all its stakeholders.
Pine Rest understands the importance of mental health support during difficult times and that the top reason for not pursuing necessary treatment is cost. The Pine Rest Student Assistance Program (SAP), also known as the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), is designed to support the health, energy, focus, and well-being of students, teachers, and staff so they can succeed in and outside of the classroom. SAP/EAP offers comprehensive and tailored packages, with services provided by local experts, including: 24/7 counseling hotline, online & in-person counseling, legal services, financial consultation, elder care consultation, leadership training and critical incident response services.

The Student Assistance Program at Kenowa Hills will be effective immediately, be available throughout the summer months, and continue through June of 2022.

Throughout February and March 2021, Kenowa Hills turned green for Mental Health Awareness. It’s been a difficult time for many people; hospitalizations are up, suicide ideation is growing among adolescence, and often times children and adults are feeling isolated and alone.
This initiative is a priority for our Mental Health Team and the district. “Paint Kenowa Green” served as a visual reminder in our buildings and we will start each day with valuable messages about mental health. We hope to continue to engage students, families, and staff across the district to end the stigma surrounding mental health issues. Follow us on Facebook for more information and helpful tips regarding mental health.
Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
