*NEW* Student Support Advocate (SSA) Expansion


Snohomish County Human Services, Behavioral Health & Veterans Division, is seeking proposals from Snohomish County Public School Districts for an expansion of the already existing Student Support Advocate (SSA) program. The SSA program targets students identified as high risk for behavioral health issues, including substance use and mental health concerns, and involves placing a case manager (the SSA) in a school to help identify at-risk students’ needs and connect students and families with relevant services in and outside of the K-12 system. This current opportunity is open to Districts without an already existing County-funded SSA program and located in the following regions: North Snohomish County (Arlington, Darrington, and Lakewood school districts) and East Snohomish County (Index, Lake Stevens, and Snohomish School Districts). 


Please refer to the Behavioral Health RFP & Letter of Interest webpage for more information. 


Questions are due via email to Amanda.Franke@snoco.org by 3:00pm, local time, on Thursday, May 28th, 2020.


Final proposals are due via email to Amanda.Franke@snoco.org by 3:00pm, local time, on Thursday, June 11th, 2020.

*NEW* Trauma-Informed Practices in Schools Consultation


Snohomish County Human Services, Behavioral Health & Veterans Division, is offering an opportunity to Snohomish County public schools to participate in a program to build the framework of a trauma-informed District. Four cohorts, comprised of 24 Snohomish County schools, elementary through high school, and two whole Districts, have already begun the work of installing Trauma-Informed Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (T-MTSS). The goals of implementing trauma-informed practices (TIP)/T-MTSS in whole Districts as well as individual school settings include, but are not limited to, the following: decreased exclusionary discipline; decreased absenteeism; increased graduation rates; increased teaching time; increased student sense of belonging and self-competency; and increased staff knowledge and skills to manage behaviors and create meaningful relationships with all students. Trauma-informed practice implementation is a universal intervention, and best-practices apply to all students, not just those with known trauma.


Please refer to the Behavioral Health RFP & Letter of Interest webpage for more information.


Letters of interest are due via email to Amanda.Franke@snoco.org by 3:00pm, local time, on Wednesday, June 17th, 2020 (date has been extended as of June 3, 2020).
