Student Support Team
The reasons for the students having difficulties are varied, ranging from personal crisis issues, illness, family issues, financial difficulties to attendance or academic problems.
The Student Support Team (SST) works with classroom teachers to keep students academically on track. Teachers have specific 'red flag' criteria that require timely and specific interventions. In their referrals to the SST, classroom teachers share important information about attendance and missing assessments with 'desired outcomes' that guide a recovery plan. SST members then work with the classroom teacher to ensure deadlines are met and expectations for students are achieved.
Working with the students, the SST finds ways for the student to achieve success at Centre High. This includes assistance with student funding, personal counselling, referrals to outside agencies and connecting students to tutors and other supports.
The Student Support Team also works closely with the Cultural Liaison in support of our First Nations, Metis and Inuit students. The Student Support Team works with students to remove any barriers to the students achieving success and moving on with their plans for their lives after Centre High.
The Cultural Liaison at CHC works as a part of the Student Support Team and assists First Nations, Metis and Inuit students in connecting to post-secondary institutions, gathering information on admission requirements, connecting students to culture (i.e. Elders, ceremonies, etc), setting and reaching goals, mentoring, advocating for students with teachers and administrative staff, and much more.
