Mental Health and Crisis Management
With all the conversation surrounding COVID-19, we understand that it can cause students to feel nervous and anxious. It is important to help your student manage and cope with these feelings. The following link outlines how parents can help their child(ren) during this uncertain time.
Mental Health Resources
As a parent, you may be aware of changes in your teen’s behavior but may not know how to proceed. Crisis Clinic has put out Helpful Advice For Parents to help with communicating with your child.
The Superintendent’s Advisory Council recently met at the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit 16 for their monthly meeting.

Click Here for more facts when speaking to your legislatures about House Bill 526 and Senate Bill 34 regarding funding reform for Cyber Schools
Proposed House Bill (526) and Senate Bill (34) could save Line Mountain taxpayers more than a half-million dollars. A full presentation regarding the continued concerns with local tax payer funding of Cyber Schools can be found by clicking HERE. While there is nothing definitive to report currently, there has been a lot of discussion on the bills introduced by Rep. Sonney (House Bill 526) and Sen. Schwank (Senate Bill 34) that would require parents to pay that tuition if the school district of residence offers a full-time cyber program. Although there is a lot of momentum and discussion about cyber charter tuition, many don’t think either bill will make it across the finish line. Please talk to your legislators about bills introduced by Rep. Sonney and Sen. Schwank and support for those bills.
Line Mountain SD Homeless information
Pennsylvania’s Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program was established to make sure homeless youth have access to a free and appropriate public education while removing barriers that homeless children face. Its goal is to have the educational process continue as uninterrupted as possible while the children are in homeless situations. Some of the other main objectives of Pennsylvania’s Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness Program are to inform local school districts of their responsibilities to homeless children and youth, to increase awareness about the needs of homeless children, explain current laws and policies, and provide practical tips for working with homeless children.
