Social Emotional Learning and Prevention Teams
The district's social and emotional learning and prevention services teams work collaboratively with the school, family, and community stakeholders to design and deliver customized student prevention and intervention support. The primary purpose of this team is to prioritize social and emotional learning, school climate, equity and inclusion, trauma-informed practices, and student empowerment. The primary goal is that all students develop the knowledge, skills, and social and emotional intelligence needed to achieve personal success in continuing education, career, and community.

Social Services Managers (SSM) promote stability and success through partnerships with educators, families, students, and communities. We collaborate with schools and families to identify the students' needs, develop strategic interventions and implement plans to enhance social-emotional wellbeing and improve academic performance.
The mission of the FNSBSD Comprehensive School Counseling Program is to advocate and provide support for maximum student achievement in the areas of academic, career, and personal/social growth. School counselors work with parents, educators, and the community to provide developmentally appropriate and comprehensive services that meet the needs of all students in order for them to become productive members of an ever-changing global society.
