Child and Family Support Teams (CFST)Seven schools in the Winston Salem / Forsyth County School system are Child and Family Support Team schools. The purpose of these teams is to identify and coordinate appropriate services and support for children at risk of school failure or out-of-home placement by addressing the physical, social, legal, emotional and developmental factors that affect academic performance. Referrals are generated through self referral by students or from school personnel and families. Teams, composed of a clinical school social worker and a registered nurse, assess and offer interventions specific to the needs of the student and their family through direct service or referral to appropriate Human Service providers.
The teams encourage collaboration among all Human Service providers and the development of a system-of-care on behalf of children and families.
