Student Assistance Team
July 14, 2020
Johnson County Central Schools has a Student Assistance Team (SAT) in place in each of the school buildings. This team is composed of classroom teachers, administrators, guidance counselors, and enrichment teachers who meet to discuss student concerns. When a teacher has concerns about a student, the team gathers to discuss these concerns and gives suggestions and/or interventions to help the student become more successful in the school environment.
For academic concerns, students may receive additional support through the Title I program, from the reading teacher, through additional help from a classroom paraeducator, or from additional time from the classroom teacher before, during daily breaks, or after school. If a student continues to struggle academically, the team may recommend testing from our school psychologist to determine if a student may receive special education services, occupational therapy, physical therapy, or speech therapy. We want all students to learn to the best of their ability.
For behavioral concerns, students may be placed on a behavior plan that focuses on positive support for acceptable behaviors and/or consequences for unacceptable behaviors. Students must learn to be responsible for their choices and actions. It is important that the school environment is a safe and respectful place for all students.
If any parent has questions or concerns about their child, please contact the classroom teacher to set up an appointment. We must all work together for the benefit of our students.
