Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT)

The Lynn Public Schools will be conducting an annual state mandated program that focuses on screening for the use of alcohol, marijuana and other substances. Our goal is to let students know that we are available to reinforce healthy decisions and to assist them in obtaining support if needed for substance use.

This year, we will screen 7th and 9th grade students. All screenings will be conducted by either a guidance counselor, school nurse, social worker or health teacher confidentially in private one-to-one sessions. We will utilize the CRAFFT-II screening tool.

Students who are not using substances will have their healthy choices reinforced by the screener. The screener will provide brief feedback to any student who reports using substances, or who is at risk for future substance use. If needed, we will refer students to our guidance staff or social worker for further evaluation. This program focuses on harm prevention and does not generate disciplinary action. Results of the screening will not be included in your student’s school record. Every student will be given educational materials on substance use that includes resource information.

As with any school screening, you have the right to opt your child out of this screening. Please notify the school in writing. Additionally, screening is voluntary and students may choose not to answer any or all of the screening questions.
We encourage all parents/guardians to talk with their child about substance use.

More information and resources are available here and at your child’s school.

Together, schools and parents/guardians CAN make a difference for our youth.
For questions on the program, please contact your child’s school nurse, the district SBIRT Coordinator or Director of Nursing:
