Project SMARTS – Students must return the consent form with parent approval for participation by 3/1 – ACTION REQUESTED

The University of South Florida’s Project SMARTS research team has partnered with Pasco County Schools and River Ridge Middle School to help identify students who may benefit from additional support and connect them with those supports. SMARTS stands for School Mental Health, Assessment, Response, and Training for Suicide Prevention. Each student should have received a physical copy of the consent form, the same as the electronic consent. You will only have to complete one version of the consent form if you want your child to participate; please submit the form by FRIDAY, MARCH 1st. USF is asking that you return the consent form for your child, regardless of whether or not you would like your child to participate. Students will receive a treat from USF if they return the form. Detailed procedures are outlined in the consent form below. If you have any questions, please get in touch with Erica Ortiz-Pellicer ( Thank you.
