NP assembles at risk task force

Friday, May 1, 2009

A task force concerned about at risk behaviors is in the making among concerned community members and school staff in the North Putnam school district. This group grew out of the Wellness Committee put together at North Putnam schools earlier this year.

More than 30 people met Wednesday evening at North Putnam High School to discuss ways to educate and provide services to at risk children. Representatives from the schools, Cummins Mental Health, area churches, Putnam County Youth Development Commission, probation, concerned parents, grandparents and many others were at the meeting.

This was a first step brainstorming session to determine what kind of things can be done to help the community's at risk children.

For information about the task force contact Jason Chew at North Putnam High School at 522-6282 or email jchew@nputnam.k12.in.us
