Special School District
Special School District of Missouri

Special School District (SSD) is a partner to provide special education services within the Jennings School District. While many people know this, many more do not know the opportunities SSD offers to ALL of our parents. Two notable resources offered are a lending library (located at the SSD central office in Town and Country) and the many parent workshops. A few years ago I attended one of the workshops on "Brain Gym" at SSD and sat with parents as they learned special exercises to help their children (especially useful with for children with ADHD). This and other free workshops are offered again this Fall and the updated listings are in the newsletter just published, "SSD Parent Connection". For ongoing listings of parent workshops offered and to register, visit

"The vision of the Guidance and Counseling Staff is to work with schools to help ensure that each school has a fully implemented comprehensive guidance and counseling program that supports the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students through the delivery of guidance curriculum, individual student planning and responsive services. The program is managed and evaluated through system support activities that also support the on-going mission of the school"-Bragg Stanley, Director

Mental Health
Keeping Kids First

In November 2008, St. Louis County voters passed a 1/4 cent sales tax measure, also known as Proposition 1 and Putting Kids First, which created a community children's service fund to provide mental health and substance abuse services for children and youth ages nineteen and under in St. Louis County.
