What is a Student & Family Specialist?
The Student & Family Specialist (SFS) supports students in achieving success and growth in their social and emotional development. In addition, we provide support and guidance to parents and staff in creating and maintaining a school environment that fosters learning and student achievement.
Each year services typically include:
Individual support to students
Crisis intervention services
Educational student groups
Parent education and support
Community resources and referrals
School-wide and classroom initiatives
We support students and families by focusing on a variety of topics including:
Grief and loss
Social and emotional learning
Conflict resolution skills
Anxiety and stress
Students are referred to a Student & Family Specialist through teachers, our building principal, or their parents when there is a concern that a child's social and/or emotional needs are interfering with his/her academic performance.
Also, students may seek out support on their own by coming to talk with a Student & Family Specialist
We are here to help!
