As a school, we strive to meet the needs of the whole child, including the social-emotional needs of every student. Our teachers know your child by name and by need and we work hard to build relationships and understand all of our learners. To better ensure we support every student, this year we will be using a universal screener to help us ensure we have identified every student who may need additional social-emotional support.
The universal screener is a series of questions that staff members complete for the students they support. Students do not participate in the screener or receive direct feedback about the results. If your child has elevated risk factors identified through this screener, we would contact you directly to discuss how we can work together to intervene and support your student. This is simply one additional way for our staff make sure we are helping every student be successful. If you have any questions about the screener, please feel free to contact me.
