Join BSD’s District Equity and Access Leadership Team (DEALT) on May 15th at 5:30PM in the BHS cafeteria for a special screening of the powerful documentary “Who Cares About Kelsey?” followed by a panel discussion.
Kelsey Carroll has one goal – to graduate from high school – and plenty of reasons why she shouldn’t. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, sexual abuse, and ADHD. As a freshman, she didn’t earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. ‘Who Cares About Kelsey?‘ is the story of Kelsey’s transformation from a defiant and disruptive “problem student” to a motivated and self-confident young woman. Along the way, critical figures in her personal and educational life shape her coming of age and play important roles in an education revolution that’s about empowering – not overpowering – youth with emotional and behavioral challenges.
All are welcome to view this powerful film and participate in this important discussion. Panelists will include mental health and student services experts, including:
Andrew Amabile, BHS School Psychologist
Jackie Corbally, Burlington Police Department Opioid Policy Coordinator
Josh Edelbaum, BSD Social Worker
