Social/emotional support and intervention is a collaboration between administrators, teachers, parents, counselors, school social workers and school psychologists. By building student skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity we prepare students for learning and for life. Our work covers prevention, as well as targeted and intensive intervention for those who need additional support. Five Star Schools has a district crisis response team that responds when unfortunate situations occur in any of the schools.
Every school in the Five Star District is staffed with counselors, social workers and school psychologists who are highly trained in supporting students. Through extensive training they are able to assess students at risk for suicide, conflict resolution, bullying, and drug and alcohol abuse education. In addition to these roles, all school staff is taught the signs and symptoms of at-risk behaviors. Our professionals are here to listen to students.
