Communities in Schools (CIS)
SHS is fortunate to have a full-time Communities in Schools (CIS) social service provider on campus to deliver a variety of programming and provide referrals to other agencies as needed. Whether it is eye glasses, tutoring, a safe place to live, or just someone to talk to, our CIS Wellness Counselor is there to help. The Wellness Counselor provide supportive guidance and counseling to students in need of additional support in individual or group settings.
The CIS Wellness Counselor provide students in crisis with interventions that alleviate emotional and behavioral challenges, enhance coping skills, improve student emotional and physical health, and in turn, scholastic achievement. Interventions target conflict in the home, grief and loss, developmental concerns, identity issues, verbal or physical aggression, anxiety, withdrawal, suspected drug/alcohol use, and unusual behavior. Children in need of these counseling services are identified by referrals from school principals and teachers, and parents.
