Student Success Programs
Student Support Services Team
A Team Committed to Your Student's Success
When students are in crisis or are experiencing academic, family, or social challenges, they struggle to fully engage in their education. To meet the variety of needs that can conflict with student success, Insight School of Michigan (ISMI) has created the Student Support Services Team (SSST).
What the Team Does
The purpose of the team is to eliminate the barriers and risk factors that make students vulnerable to falling behind in classes, failing classes, or dropping out.
With an ongoing responsibility to build relationships outside of the school, the team advocates for local and national resources to give students access to necessary social services. The goal is to build within the school an infrastructure of support before needs arise for anything that may jeopardize a student's education, such as medical challenges, domestic issues, legal trouble, or even computer and internet problems.
Connecting to the Team
In the Social and Emotional Learning program , teachers who are specially trained to identify student hardship refer those in need of additional assistance to SSST. The team then works with students and families, offering guidance and support as needed and connecting them with additional support resources.
