According to a list of schools published by Teach.Com, Wellsville is among those labeled as high-needs.  The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 defines a high-needs school as “within the top quartile of elementary and secondary schools statewide, as ranked by the number of unfilled, available teacher positions; or is located in an area where at least 30 percent of students come from families with incomes below the poverty line; or an area with a high percentage of teachers who are not certified or licensed.”  High-needs schools also serve communities with higher poverty rates, where classrooms are influenced by the difficulties of their students’ lives.  Most high-needs schools are in rural or urban areas. 

They say it takes a village to raise children and meet their needs.  On Tuesday, June 18, 2024, you have an opportunity to learn about today’s youth, their struggles, and their triumphs,  You can also find out what you can do to support the youth in the Wellsville community.
