What are some of the services we provide?

  • Register/orient new students
  • Help students with academic issues
  • Help students with personal problems (support groups, individual meetings, etc.)
  • Help families access medical, financial, mental health, and other services
  • Help families access food, clothing, housing, financial, medical, mental health and any other needed resources.

  • Intervene in crisis/emergency situations
  • Help families access medical, financial, mental health, and other services
  • Coordinate services and supports not limited to transportation, academic help, and community resources for identified students who are in a foster care placement or for eligible students who are experiencing homelessness

Who is the right person to talk to first?

  • If your question or concern is medically based, start with the school nurse.
  • For most academic and personal issues, start with the grade-level counselor; the counselor will make a decision about whether to refer to/consult another Student Support Services member.
  • If you are at risk of, or currently experiencing homelessness, please contact the school social worker to determine whether your family is eligible for supports under the federal McKinney Vento Act. You may also request that the social worker contact you by completing this form: Student/Family Housing Questionnaire

When would it be appropriate to call on us? 651-482-5289

  • Call us if your student is not successful academically (for example: significant change in typical academic pattern or failing multiple classes).
  • Call us if you believe your student is not behaving within the scope of what a typical adolescent’s behavior is (or if you’re not sure).
  • Call us if you’re not sure who to ask about a concern you have.
  • Call us if you need help accessing resources.

Do we ever refer to agencies outside of school or consult with other agencies?

  • Yes....when the concerns are more significant than what we would be able to address in a school setting, or when students or parents would prefer to work with someone outside of the school environment.
  • With signed permission from parents, we will share or obtain information from outside agencies to develop a cohesive plan for the student.

How do we collaborate/work with teachers and administrators?

  • Each counselor rotates from 7th grade to 8th grade in order to remain with the same group of students for two consecutive years.
  • Both counselors attend weekly meetings with each team of teachers in order to discuss student needs.
  • The school psychologist, social worker, and school nurse attend team meetings when there is a need for specific plan development.
  • When teachers share concerns about students, Student Support Services members follow up by gathering more information for teachers.
