Identify and support students’ social and emotional needs
School counselors play an important role in supporting student success. Working directly with students as well as collaboratively with teachers and principals, guidance counselors are able to develop individual and systematic interventions that address students’ social and emotional needs and promote academic achievement.
The Success Highways Resiliency Solution provides counselors with a research-based tool to not only more effectively help at-risk students, but be proactive in assisting students who may not yet be showing outward signs of risk.
Looking at the data from Success Highways Resiliency Assessments, school counselors can see at school, classroom, and individual student levels the resiliency areas that are in need of the most attention.
Individual student resiliency data identifies students grades 6-10 who are at risk of failure as early as three years before warning signs such as missed classes, failing grades, and disruptive behavior appear. This enables guidance counselors to address the needs of students proactively and institute interventions that will prevent students from falling through the cracks.
Counselors can use the Success Highways Resiliency Curriculum during advisory periods with students or as part of a school-wide Tier I intervention to promote resiliency. The 15, 45-minute lessons incorporate structured simulations, decision-making games, interactive small-group experiences, self-reflection, personal action plans, goal-based scenarios, and teacher-led discussions. Every lesson includes extension activities to help students continue to build their resiliency skills.
