Wrap Around Services

The Burke County Public School System believes that children are most successful when the needs of the whole child are met. The Wraparound Support Program is, above all, an initiative that focuses ON STUDENT VOICE.  Students who need interventions, whether those who deal with academic achievement, social emotional learning, physical or mental health, or community resources/family supports, will learn best when those needs are addressed. The program facilitates partnerships between students, schools, families and community stakeholders. 

All schools have a minimum of two full-time Counselors on staff, a Parent Coordinator and a district School Social Worker are available to support needs beyond those that can be served through our counselors or would be more appropriately handled through social work resources. Our School Social Worker is well-acquainted with the resources available in the school and community and works to remove barriers to learning by supporting students and families.
