KINGSTON — The Luzerne Intermediate Unit director on Wednesday lauded the Greater Nanticoke Area and Tunkhannock school districts for their recognition by Community Care Behavioral Health Organization in meeting or exceeding its standards of care.
“This recognition reflects consistent quality of services by member districts,” said Anthony Grieco.
Grieco also credited the unit’s behavioral health department with a successful autism open house held recently that provided information and support to students and families.
Jennifer Runquist, director of behavioral health services, said that in offering specialized autism services, the LIU seeks to provide comprehensive support for its students in the autism classrooms.
She said a well-qualified staff made that possible.
Grieco announced a required comprehensive plan has been submitted to state Department of Education and is available for review by board members.
The next regular meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23
