The FSCRC Program offers support services for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 and their families, who may be experiencing a range of challenges at school, at home or in multiple environments. The program may be an extension of existing services, or for those students and their families who are not currently involved with other support agencies. The program offers individual counseling, group counseling and classroom and community presentation. Early intervention and prevention is the focus.
Family School Community Resource Counselors assist students through working collaboratively with them, their parents/caregivers, school-based team members and professionals from other community support services, to set meaningful goals and create an Individualized Intervention Plan. The Plan may include providing education, developing specific strategies/skills, and arranging resources that will enable the student to experience increased success in school, at home and in the community.
Student success is monitored regularly and is based on the observable, measurable outcomes, established by the student’s support team. While the Family School Community Resource Counselors believe in the importance of collaboration, they also recognize that, at times, it may be in a student’s best interest, when age appropriate, to work individually with a student. Parents are also able to request support for their child and themselves without involvement of other professionals. The FSCRC Program is intended to be a short-term intervention. Referrals to other community agencies will be recommended when more intensive, long term, therapeutic support is required. The confidentiality of individuals involved in counseling services is protected under the Freedom of Information and Privacy (FOIP) Act.
The program focuses on a strength-based model that builds the capacity of the student and their parent(s)/caregiver(s).
