Donegal High School's student assistance program is called CARES.
CARES is an acronym that stands for Committee to Assist and Refer Students. CARES is a multi-disciplinary team composed of school personnel (teachers, staff, administrators, nurses, and counselors). This team has been trained to understand and identify students who are having problems in school because of chemical use/abuse, depression/anxiety, grief, or other related factors that affect the student's ability to learn or succeed in the classroom.
CARES serves as an intervention and referral program to aid students in overcoming these barriers. The team does not diagnose or treat mental health or drug/alcohol disorders. Students may be referred to CARES by:
1. Self referral
2. Peer referral
3. Faculty/staff referral
4. Parent referral
All referrals are kept confidential. For more information about this committee, see the guidance office or administration.
