The physical, emotional and social well-being of a student is critical to their academic success and future accomplishments. Through collaborations with the Santa Clara County Department of Behavioral Health and other community agencies and partners, the Franklin-McKinley School District has established a sustainable infrastructure that maximizes resources and utilizes current staff to provide services to all students in the district.
