I am Walinda Batts, Warsaw Middle's Child and Family Support Team Social Worker.
What is the Child & Family Support Team (CFST)?CFST is comprised of a school nurse and school social worker who identify and coordinate appropriate services and support for children at-risk of school failure or out-of-home placement and work together with the student's parents/guardians and other supports to develop a plan of success. Our Principal Kenneth Houston and Assistant Principal Mayshelle Newkirk-Tate along with the Child & Family Support Team utilize the "One Child, One Team, One Plan" approach.
The CFST serves as a liaison between home, school and the community by providing direct and indirect services to students, families and school personnel. Parents, teachers, school staff, and/or community providers can make a referral for CFST services. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact a me at 910-293-7997 (school) or 910-271-4559 (cell). I am here to help our students, parents and community.
I believe in every students' success.
