Chemical Health Support
Promoting and supporting chemical health is an important component to achieving success personally and academically. Research shows youth chemical use of any kind is detrimental to the personal, social, and academic success of students. Moreover, youth substance use impacts overall health and brain development Working together, we can support the chemical health of students, and prevent youth substance use and abuse. Lakeville Area Public Schools is committed to meeting student needs through ongoing staff development, school-based counseling and support, and consultation and care coordination with community-based professionals when requested.
