Student Support Programming

Student Services Support Services 

Our student support programs provide supports for students who need significant academic or interpersonal and/or social emotional skills support, and provide a way for students and families to access community resources and programs. Our staff work with students/families to increase the connection students have with school by providing the supports necessary so students can attend school and remain in class, increasing instructional time. Families are encouraged to become involved. The staff coordinates with parents, students and the appropriate service providers to get the help needed where and when the student needs it - at school.

The Juvenile Court Liaison Program in collaboration with the Juvenile Court Office works with students in grades 5-12 involved in the juvenile court system.  Two onsite Juvenile Court Liaisons work in the schools to monitor probation students and identified at-risk students in terms of school attendance, academics and discipline. They also offer Aggression Replacement Training (ART) to assist students in dealing with peer pressure, anger control and life skills. These students are identified through student service provider meetings.

School Resource Officers (SRO) serve all FDCSD schools.  One SRO is housed at the middle school and another is housed at the high school.  The officers work to build connections and relationships with students in a positive non-threatening setting.
