The PFS program provides supports to students with emotional disabilities. Students attend regular education classes but receive a structured program of support for their social, emotional and academic needs. The social emotional learning competencies directly taught in the Program for Success include, but are not limited to:

  • Self-Awareness - the ability to accurately recognize one's own emotional/thoughts and their influence on behavior.

  • Self-Management/Organization - the ability to regulate one's emotions, thoughts and behaviors effectively in different situations.

  • Social Awareness - the ability to take the perspective of and empathize with others from diverse backgrounds and cultures, to understand social and ethical norms for behavior and to recognize  family, school and community resources and supports.

  • Relationship Skills - the ability to establish and maintain healthy and rewarding relationships with diverse individuals and groups.

  •  Responsible Decision Making - the ability to make constructive and respectful choices about personal behavioral and social interactions based on consideration of ethical standards, safety concerns, social norms, the realistic evaluation of consequences of various actions and the well-being of self and others.

Students work closely with their case manager, special education teacher, counselor, special education assistants, school psychologist and an assigned program counselor to receive the services they need to be successful.  The PFS Program Coordinator consults with both parents and teachers to create a team approach to helping these students be successful socially, emotionally and academically.

Parents, please check the parent portal/Edmodo on a regular basis to monitor your student's academic progress.
