The Henniker Community School Student Success Center will support a safe and educationally stimulating environment for all students.
What is the Student Success Center (SSC)?
The SSC is a place in our school where students receive social, emotional and behavioral support. It is available to students who are struggling with the expectations of the school day. Students may be referred by a teacher and/or a parent to the SSC to learn how to identify issues that concern them and develop appropriate strategies for dealing with them. The SSC can also be used proactively by students as a support for working through any immediate issues.
The SSC serves all students and provides direct instruction in social and emotional skills that impact behavior choices. In the SSC, students learn appropriate replacement behaviors and develop a plan to assist them when they need it. The SSC gives the support needed for students to take responsibility for their choices and for how they respond to other people's choices of behavior.
The classroom teacher is always the main contact with parents and will inform parents if he/she has concerns about student behavior. The SSC teacher may also make a phone call home, but it is important to understand that parents can and should make contact with the SSC teacher if they have any questions or concerns at any time. It is important to understand that consequences are not assigned by SSC staff but by referring staff members or administration.
