Marinette School District receives grants

MARINETTE — Marinette School District received $75,000 from the Department of Public Instruction for mental health services. The funding comes from the School-Based Mental Health Services Grants Program.

The Department of Public Instruction distributed $6.5 million for services to support students' mental health in 120 public school districts and one independent charter school. 

"According to the latest Youth Risk Behavior Survey results, more than four in ten students had a mental health need over the previous year," State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor said. "These grants will help those children. Students in every region of our state, in small and large districts, rural and urban communities, and everywhere in between, will benefit from mental health services they wouldn't otherwise receive."
