Cardea

Since the passage of the Healthy Youth Act in January 2016 which requires CSE, the demand for training and technical support has increased exponentially.  To meet this demand, Cardea has accelerated its work to build the capacity of county-based CSE Networks which provide a vehicle to share information and best practices; establish model policies and procedures to ensure that implementation becomes institutionalized; network with other administrators/educators responsible for implementing the new CSE requirements; and provide training and ongoing technical assistance to a number of school districts working in the same county.  The CSE Networks have been key in scaling efforts in California.
