Mental and Behavioral Health Grant

PLC Schedule and Resources December 2021-April 2022

Our Partnership

Hello Everyone! I look forward to continuing our work with your mental health teams! I have included the PLC schedule and ZOOM link to register for our PLCs through April along with the links for the Implementation Roadmap. There is also a link to create a School Health Assessment and Performance Evaluation System (SHAPE) Account for any team member that has not created an account. I'm always here if you have any questions or concerns! My goal is to support your mental and behavioral health goals for your students; let's make this happen!

Creating a SHAPE Account

Please click on the link below to create a SHAPE account if you haven't already. Please know the first person from your district to make the account will be the administrator, and most districts already have an administrator. At the top right, you will see "Sign Up" to create this account. This process will take under 5 minutes.

All members of the team will create a SHAPE Account for the Small and Rural Mental and Behavioral Grant. The first person from the district to register is the administrator for the account.

Samples of the SHAPE District Profiles and Assessment

The Profile and Quality Assessment are required under the grant. Most districts have completed the profile and assessment. If you are still working on them, please make time with your team to complete the process. If you need my assistance, please let me know.
