North Country schools have reported an uptick in behavioral and mental health problems

WHITEFIELD — North Country schools have reported an uptick in behavioral and mental health problems since New Hampshire returned to in-person learning. That includes White Mountains Regional High School, which reshuffled its administration to better address those issues. Last week Michael Smith was introduced as the Dean of Students, a newly created position to deal with students’ conduct, attitude and well-being. He will work under co-principals Patsy Ainsworth and Mike Curtis, who said Smith possessed the right background and temperament for the Dean of Students role.
