Hi there! My name is Tayli Abel and I have been working as the SUCCESS Case Manager at Capitol View since May 2017. The SUCCESS Program is here to partner with families and students who need support in the areas of attendance and behavior. I also assist with providing resources for basic needs, housing, parenting skills, and mental health supports. I am here year round so please feel free to contact me with any concerns or needs you may have. I’m looking forward to another great year here at Capitol View!
