Often students experience personal or family challenges, situations and circumstances that may be beyond their control and an affect them in adverse ways. CSI Educational Support Groups are available to support any students who are experiencing personal challenges, crisis and problems that are affecting their full potential in academic/personal success or concentration. The Clovis Support and Intervention program aims to identify struggling students and connect them with the with services available to help them in their school community. These Educational Support groups facilitate students connecting with two adults staff and a small group of their peers with similar life challenges on a weekly basis for eight sessions. Some of these groups may include topics of general Teen Support, Grief and Loss, Divorce/Families in Transition, Anger Management, Bullying, Motivation, Family Illness, Drug and Alcohol Issues, and Pregnant and Parenting Teens. Students gain improved listening skills, communication skills and coping skills. These support groups are confidential and meet during the school day and students are expected to make up the work missed for that class and work with the teacher to stay caught up.
This confidential service that is provided by the CSI Program through trained and certified staff, is based on the educational premise that : Students who receive help and support to deal with pressing personal concerns will be better able to focus their remaining energy more efficiently on their schoolwork and important tasks of developing academically, socially, and emotionally.
Students can be referred by parents, teachers, coaches, counselors, administrators’ or any other staff who are seeking help and support for students, through an online referral process or CSI Student Referral Forms located in the front office.
