At New Visions Charter High School for Advanced Math and Science II, we care deeply about providing the holistic supports needed for our students to thrive not only in our school, but also in our global community. The commitment to educating the whole child starts with the structure of our Grade Level Student Support Teams, which consists of an Assistant Principal, School Counselor, School Social Worker, Dean, and Attendance Coordinator. Grade Level Student Support Teams (SST) make it a priority to get to know every single student in the cohort so that we have a true handle on the individual needs of our students. The SST meets on a weekly basis to review any academic and/or socio-emotional concerns that come up for students on their grade level caseloads. The team is also responsible for following up to make contact with students and families to check on overall wellness and to see if there are any other concerns that need to be addressed in order to best support them.

In addition, we have layered in monthly meetings where our SST meets with the grade level teachers to discuss students of concern and the overall progress of students on each grade level from both an academic and socio-emotional lens. This provides the SST with additional insight on how to best set up proper interventions for student support. Our grade level approach shows our students that we take the time to know them, understand their individual needs, and put systems in place that will allow them to become the best version of themselves.
