A Major Investment in Emotional Well-Being!

Frontier Schools is the recipient of two grants that account for one of the largest combined investments in the emotional well-being of students and faculty in the Kansas City area. Grants for a major expansion of the school’s mental health services from the Jackson County Children’s Service Fund and from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) amount to $950,000.


Directing this multi-disciplinary program is Frontier Senior Social Services Coordinator Melissa Meyer. Says Ms. Meyer, “The school has recognized, along with all other educational systems in the nation, that the pandemic deeply affected the mental health of both students and faculty. Frontier has worked hard over the past two years to build what we think is an innovative model that will bring added resources in a more coordinated and immediate response to both student and faculty needs.”


Superintendent Demircan comments, “A positive emotional state of both students and faculty relates directly to classroom learning. We are excited what these new range of services will mean to the school’s overall academic performance.”
