Be Well 365 Recovery Student Supports and Interventions

Be Well 365 Recovery Student Supports and Interventions

All schools will continue to implement social-emotional supports for students.  

Student Well-Being Teams: Schools have designated student well-being teams that will receive referrals for student support from school staff and families.  These teams will provide support to students who are struggling with social-emotional concerns, attendance, and engaging with online learning. They will also support the delivery and monitoring of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) lessons.   The teams are comprised of school administrators, counselors, psychologists, pupil personnel workers (PPW’s), parent community coordinators (PCC’s) and other building staff. 

Student Psychoeducational Lessons: All schools are required to implement a student psychoeducational lesson during a Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) schedule blocks before October 2, 2020.  Student psychoeducational lessons provide direct crisis intervention support to students.  This lesson will provide students crisis facts about the dual pandemic (COVID-19 and systemic racism) in our nation.  It will also provide information on common crisis feelings/reactions, stress management strategies, and where to find help.  Teachers will implement these lessons with coaching from the building counselors, psychologists, and other school-based mental health staff.  Families who have concerns about their child’s ability to participate in the student psychoeducational lessons due to a mental health concern or a prior traumatic event should contact the school administration to request an alternative way of meeting the lesson objectives.  The student will also be referred to the student well-being team for additional support. 

Social Emotional Learning Lessons: Throughout the school year, staff will provide Social Emotional Learning lessons to help students effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. 

Family resources:  Parent Academy workshops are free workshops that provide information, resources, and tools & tips to support student success. The Parent Academy is designed to inform and empower families as advocates and partners in their children's education. Workshops provide families with useful information and resources to support their children's academic and emotional well-being, as well as helping them to be college and career ready. Through a variety of learning opportunities, we hope to strengthen our engagement with families and the community. We recognize that behind every successful student are supportive families, teachers, school staff and community members who take an active role in educating our students.  

We want our families and students to remain engaged throughout the school year. While we may not be able to meet face-to-face, Student, Family and School Services is excited to provide "Parent Academy TO GO," a series of virtual workshops for families to view at home.
