Wellness Network

Community School Wellness Network

The Community School Wellness Network focuses on ensuring each child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.  The foundation of our network is a strong Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS). Coordinating policy, process, and practice with the MTSS model is essential for all people, programs, and partners within the network to be successful, working together to help children. Oakridge MTSS focuses on providing strong Tier 1 programs and partnerships in the areas of academics, behavior, health, and social services.

Oakridge maintains a strong focus on academic and behavioral programs for students, but our schools can’t do this work alone.  We believe in caring for the whole child through strong Tier 2 & 3 community partnerships to ensure kids are healthy and their families receive the care they need when challenges arise.

Community Partnerships

Healthy Futures – HUB Model

Muskegon Community Health Project, the community benefit ministry of Mercy Health Muskegon, sponsors our Healthy Futures-Pathways Community HUB Model. It assures efficient and effective service delivery in our community using a 21st Century system of coordinating care services among community agencies. Our students and families benefit from having our Community Health Worker serve as a single point of contact to coordinate delivery of services by assisting families in navigating the network of services available across many Community Health Pathways. While any Care Coordinating Agency (CCA) can be contacted by our local families, they will be referred and assigned to a single Community Health Worker who will assist them with any Community Health Pathway needed and hold agencies accountable for providing services.

Pathways to Potential

(formerly known as Family Resource Center)

MDHHS Success Coaches are in Oakridge Middle School right next to the Oakridge Teen Health Center.  These caring individuals serve all students and families regardless of whether they receive financial assistance or other casework services from the department.   The Pathways to Potential office helps families with concerns related to health, safety, self-sufficiency, education, and student attendance rates.
