WHAT does the Student Support Services Team Believe?
- We believe all students can learn and deserve to achieve lifelong success academically, personally/socially and in the world of work.
- We believe learning requires active participation, mutual respect, and individual accountability of students, teachers, parents and community members.
- We believe working as a team with all individuals involved in our students' lives is the strongest and most effective way to help students build a magnificent future.
WHAT is the Student Support Services Vision?
Through collaboration between students, teachers, SST members, administrators, families and the community, we envision a school environment where all students will be provided enrichment and support in the areas of academic, career and personal/social development. Students eager to come to school regularly, engage in learning, having positive social interactions with teachers, peers, and parents and will have set short and long term goals with steps to help them achieve lifelong success.
WHAT is the Student Support Services Team Mission?
The Student Support Services Team is about combining expertise to provide support to students and families so that all our students can be successful in middle school. The Student Support Services Team is about collaborating with teachers, administrators, parents, students, and other community organizations that may be involved with the student or family. We strive to provide a comprehensive program that will address academic, career and personal/social development of all students as well as individual intervention for students and families in need.
WHAT are the Student Support Services Program Goals?
- Academic: Of the students who did not pass their reading EOG last year, Student Services attempted to conference with 178 parents and students. Of this number, 69 conferences were held to review attendance, academic, behavior and medical data with the parent/guardian as well as the student. In collaboration with the parent/guardian and often the student, a plan was developed and a contract signed delineating what each member of the group will do to assist the student in reaching academic, attendance, behavior and health goals. By the end of the 2012-2013 school year, 40% of the students identified will pass the reading EOG.
- Career: By the end of the 2012-2013 school year, 90% of 8th graders will be able to identify one additional career (in addition to careers they identified in their 6th and 7th grade years) that interests them and the education they will need to achieve that career.
- Personal/Social: By the end of the 2012-2013 school year, 50% of students who were chronically absent in the previous year will have their absenteeism decrease by at least 50%. This will include complying with the attendance policy.
