Film Synopsis:

Kelsey Carroll has one goal- to graduate from high school- and plenty of reasons why she shouldn't.  She attends a school that had one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, abuse, self-mutilation, and ADHD.

During Kelsey's sophomore year, new school leadership implemented Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and a youth-directed planning process called RENEW to improve the school's culture and reduce the dropout rate.

Who Cares About Kelsey? is the story of Kelsey's transformation from a defiant and disruptive "problem student" to a motivated and self-confident young woman.  Along the way, critical figures in her life play important roles in an education revolution that's about empowering- not overpowering- students with emotional/behavioral disabilities.

Additional Mini Film:
