The Nokomis School District is getting $164-thousand in new state aid under the school funding reform law.
Superintendent for Nokomis School District Scott Doerr says they are seeing kids dealing with social and emotional issues even as early as elementary school. Doerr says for this reason the district has decided to bring in a new guidance counselor for the elementary schools.
Doerr says it is boils down to what is best for the kids. Doerr wants to find a way to give kids a safe place to express themselves and get the necessary help before heading back to class.
Doerr appeared as a guest on the NewsTalk WTIM Morning Show.
