The social workers, student prevention/intervention specialist, and behavior intervention specialist are available to meet with students one on one who need additional mental health, social/emotional and behavioral support.
The community liaisons provides community resources and referrals, emergency food boxes, and oversee the campus clothing closet.
A variety of support groups are offered to our students in order to assist with specific issues and/or problems that may be interfering with their social/emotional growth and/or success in high school. Groups are a great way to meet with other students who can relate to one another. Students will find a forum of peer support, where they can gain strength as they share their feelings and experiences with other students who are facing the same obstacles. Each group generally meets once a week, during the school day. Groups require an initial consultation or group screening.
Restorative Conversations/ Mediations
Conflict is a normal and positive force that can be a part of personal growth and social change. To deal effectively with a conflict, a trained facilitator manages a process of communication called a restorative conference or a mediation. Restorative conferences and mediations are a chance to sit face to face and talk, uninterrupted, so each side of the dispute is heard. It allows for problem solving, restoration and a resolution or agreement that is written and signed.
Response to Intervention
The focus of the I-Team is to develop interventions for students who do not have an IEP and are not responding to Tier I and Tier II classroom academic, social emotional and behavior interventions.
What to expect from the RTI-Team:
Students will be screened to assess if class placement is correct in math, reading or English.
RTI-Team will provide teacher’s research based interventions to implement in the classroom. Interventions may be academic, behavior and/or social emotional supports.
The student’s counselor will monitor progress to assure interventions are implemented with fidelity.
A student who does not respond to Tier I and Tier II interventions may require further Tier III interventions to be explored by the RTI-Team
