What is the I&RS Team?
The purpose of this program is to help students, who are experiencing challenges which are interfering with school, achieve success. These difficulties can include problems with academics, health, attendance or behavior. Through the different steps that comprise the I&RS process, these students are directed to appropriate services in the school or community.
What is Heroes & Cool Kids?
The program utilizes the services of current and former professional athletes whose personal life experiences enable them to train high school student leaders. The athletes train high school students to mentor middle school students on important life skills, including sportsmanship, conflict resolution and positive lifestyle choices highlighting drug, alcohol and tobacco prevention.
