MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES 
 
The safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority.  We have many initiatives in place within the district to provide assistance and also wish to provide many outside sources as well.     
 
 
 

As part of a coordinated collaborative effort of all Stark County School districts, Marlington Local Schools has begun using the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System (SS-ARS). This is a reporting system that is being implemented in all middle schools and high schools in Stark County and will provide the opportunity for students and adults to submit anonymous tips via a mobile app, a website, or a crisis telephone hotline that is staffed 24/7 with a licensed counselor.  

The tip line is 1-844-5-SAYNOW.

SS-ARS is sponsored by an organization called the Sandy Hook Promise, which is a non-profit organization founded and led by several family members who lost loved ones at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012.  Their aim is to provide programs and practices that protect students and staff while preventing the senseless and tragic loss of life. 

There is a mobile app, website, and a 24/7 phone hotline to provide anonymous tips that will be routed to school officials in situations where school intervention is needed.

CARE Teams 

  • The Marlington Local Schools CARE Team (Coordinate and Align Resources to Engage, Empower and Educate youth, family and community) is designed to assist students and their families with nonacademic barriers. The implementation of CARE Teams is comprised of teachers, administrators and staff from multiple community agencies including law enforcement, mental health, alcohol and drugs, and other social service agencies located throughout the county. The team works together in a school-based environment to address challenges facing the at-risk student population and their families.  For more information please contact our Family Support Specialists, Mrs. Kathy Weibush at [email protected].
