Loogootee Nationally Recognized

On May 22, 2017, Loogootee Community Schools was recognized for the manner in which we utilize our Federal Impact Aid.  Recently, The National Association of Federally Impacted Schools (NAFIS) featured Loogootee on its website and Facebook page.  They were especially impressed with the manner in which Elizabeth Christmas' role with Youth First is taking shape.  The following write up from NAFIS is exactly what was stated on their webpage.  We are very excited about this honor.· 

 

Faces of Impact Aid

Loogootee Community School Corporation
Loogootee, Indiana
Federal Impaction: Federal Property, Crane Naval Support Activity Base

Loogootee Schools educates 845 students from towns and rural areas in southwest Indiana. Approximately 48-percent of students qualify for free and reduced lunch. LCSC receives roughly $300,000 annually in Impact Aid, a critical source of funding. Without it, LCSC would have only one counselor for all K-12 students. With it, LCSC offers our students a full-time Youth First (YF) Social Worker, Elizabeth Christmas. YF places workers in schools to provide prevention and early intervention services for at-risk students with school behavior problems, peer relationship difficulties, depression and home-life conflicts. During the past year, Ms. Christmas served our students in the following ways:

- 1334 teacher and administrative consultations regarding students
- 661 total students served
- 560 individual meetings with students
- 285 parent consultations to assist with parent-child relationships
- 73 classroom presentations
- emergency suicide prevention

Losing Impact Aid would create massive cuts throughout our district, as it makes up 6.5-percent of our General Fund revenue.
