COORDINATED CARE NETWORK

PIONEER PARTNERS SUPPORTING CHILDREN & FAMILIES AT THE BATESVILLE SCHOOL DISTRICT

MISSION

The Coordinated Care Network (CCN) is an organization of community members dedicated to addressing the exceptional needs of Batesville School District students and families while school "care" teams are unable to meet.

Exceptional needs may include: family finance, access to certain community resources, mental health service referral and/or support, challenging home environment, access to community and school extracurricular activities, parental support issues, etc. (More examples are located at the bottom of the page.)

The CCN will lead a systematic and coordinated effort to identify and assist families in accessing a broad array of service and support or through direct assistance with funds acquired by the CCN through grants and tax-deductible donations.

PHILOSOPHY

The CCN believes each child and their family's physical, social, and emotional needs must be met in order to maximize the child's potential. The CCN also believes that each community should strive to promote "crisis" prevention and early intervention activities. The CCN also believes that the responsibility of the community to develop and coordinate activities specifically designed to assist children and families in accessing direct services and support aimed at addressing their need(s).

EXAMPLES OF EXCEPTIONAL NEEDS

  • A student was not attending school because the family had no hot water at home and their bathroom had become inoperable.
  • A student with significant asthma was in need of an air conditioned home in order to be healthy.
  • A student who was living with her functioning father doubled up with another family that was in need of assistance in securing acceptable housing.
  • Students in the Batesville School District, one of which was developmentally disabled, were in need of home renovation in order to provide them with a warm, safe, and adequate place to live.
  • Two very young children living with a single mother who had no transportation were in need of assistance in getting basic needs met, as well as immunizations. Also, the need to facilitate the enrollment in a child care center for these children was critical to their health and welfare.
