I wish to thank the Chronicle-Independent for its recent series of articles and columns surrounding the anniversary of Michael Smith’s murder and the community reaction which followed. As the Project Director of the Safe Schools / Healthy Students Initiative, I’d like to commend your excellent coverage as well as add a few items: Ours is a project designed to provide a broad range of services to students: After-school programming, school-based counseling, substance-abuse and violence education, school security and workplace/life-skills training are just a few of the services we offer through this grant-funded initiative. Since beginning operations in 2009, over 2,140 students have received 1-on-1 counseling services through this project, plus several programs impacting virtually every KCSD student.
