Students Assistance Program Available!

The Student Assistance Program is currently available for students through New Directions Behavioral Health. The program can provide free services to students and families including up to three face-to-face short term counseling sessions, on-site crisis management, 24-hour toll-free phone assistance, and a health resource library.

New Visitor Management Software

Grandview C-4 will begin using the Raptor® Visitor Management system to improve campus safety for students and faculty on January 13, 2020, at Central Office and CAIR and by January 22, 2020, at all sites. The new ID card scanning system provides practically instant screening of visitors, contractors, and volunteers for sex offender status and custom alerts, such as custody orders. As a result, school officials have a more accurate headcount of who’s on campus in case of an emergency. ***Please make sure you bring your state or federal issued photo id when picking up or dropping off your student.
