In a post-pandemic world where mental and behavioral health are at the forefront of complex issues our students face today, the School Committee candidate who is committed and qualified to address this crisis is Sarah Gold. Sarah understands that if our students are not well physically, mentally, or behaviorally, they will not have the same chance at succeeding academically.
As a licensed mental health counselor and school counselor who works with children daily, Sarah knows the direct impact that mental health and well being has on academic performance and socialization. As a member of the School Committee for the past five years, Sarah has worked tirelessly to improve our district and streamline policies and practices which have improved the educational experience for students and staff. As a mom of two children in the district, Sarah can relate to the experiences of others and understands the issues that are not only important to parents but to students and staff as well. The mental health crisis we continue to face is not going away. Sarah Gold will continue to advocate on behalf of ALL students in our district.
