Empowering schools to build strengths and resiliency that open pathways to learning


As one of the offices of Student Support Services, we are committed to the educational, social and emotional environment and supports that makes schools a significant agent of student growth and success.  Using a multi-tiered model of behavioral intervention suited to each individual student’s needs and abilities, the Office of Prevention and Intervention partners with schools to enhance trauma-informed and behavioral practices that are strength-based, culturally sensitive, developmentally appropriate and anchored in compassionate relationships.  These practices build student resiliency, social-emotional competency, ability to learn and self-esteem, which maximize student’s ability to graduate college and career ready and to become productive members of our society.
