Dardanelle School District
is the recipient of the Institution Award. DSD has gone above and beyond in their collaboration with us. Faculty and staff were immediately welcoming and eager to learn about our center and what we could do for their students. DSD has allowed us to provide mandated reporter training to staff and lessons about personal safety to the middle school. Relationships have been formed between our Advocates and DSD counselors regarding their student’s cases. Dardanelle School District truly does their part to advocate for what is best for their students.
