Survey, Talk, Acknowledge, Review

Tahoma School District (TSD) is working in partnership with King County Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) to implement a survey and intervention system at the middle and high school levels, using the School-Based SBIRT Framework: "Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral To". This could be referral to services, clubs, adult support, or anything the student may need. Starting in the 23-24 school year, the program’s name will be changing to STAR Wellness (survey, talk, acknowledge, review). The SBIRT framework will still be utilized.

Funding for the program is provided through King County’s Best Starts for Kids (BSK) initiative, with additional funding from local levy dollars.

STAR Wellness allows the district to proactively support students in building skills to prevent youth mental health and substance use issues but also to connect with anything they need in their community for positive outcomes.
