HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The Student Support Services staff are all excited to be back after having a restful, relaxing, and enjoyable holiday with their families and friends.
We held our first department meeting on Friday, January 8 with an informative and helpful presentation by Ms.Cindi Lonick, who is our behavior coach/behavior analyst. Her presentation centered on students’ behavior and how we as staff can help support them. She presented information on looking carefully for the A-B-C’s of behavior: the antecedent, the behavior and the consequences. Ms. Lonick will be working with both general education staff, special education staff, and parents to help develop behavior intervention plans that will support students both behaviorally and academically.
Staff have also begun conversations on extended school year (ESY) in preparation for the summer and the need to provide compensatory services if necessary.
