MARSHFIELD — The Marshfield Clinic Health System and Safety Plan announced top grant recipients for the 2022-23 school year this week, which included the DC Everest Area and Wausau School Districts.

Behavioral Emotional Social Traits is an online screening tool that helps educators develop and support the emotional health of schoolchildren while identifying students who may need additional positive behavioral support. Developed by school psychologist Eric P. Hartwig, Ph.D., the tool provides educators with recommended actions to take based on student behaviors.

“Since inception of Best and our partnership with Marshfield Clinic Health System and Security Health Plan, we have performed over 312,000 best screenings on children,” Hartwig said in a press release. “Throughout our partnership, we have identified some very important trends regarding the behavioral health needs of children. The last school was a particularly eye-opening year as many children returned to their schools full-time. We have seen once again the important role that structure, predictable routines and social opportunities play in a child’s development.

“This couldn’t be a more important time to recalibrate our thinking about what families and schools can do in partnership to support a child’s behavioral health. best is a tool schools can use to put the right people in the right place at the right time to help build reciprocal relationships and develop real-time personal self-regulation in the classroom.

Since 2013, Marshfield Clinic Health System and Security Health Plan have partnered with the best program and provided the best to 68 school districts.

“We are pleased to partner with so many school districts to improve the well-being of our children,” Jay Shrader, vice president of community health for the health system, said in the release. “The past two years have hit our teachers and students hard and we know from a 13-year history with this program that the best delivery of simple, actionable actions for teachers in the classroom will help students achieve better results in and out of the classroom.”

In the 2022-23 school year, 143 schools in 39 counties will benefit from the grant, which provides technical support, semester screenings for students, training, consultation and support.
