Drug Intervention

Social Emotional Learning Specialist (SELS) provides direct case management services to any student who has been suspended for substance use or who is suspected of substance use and referred by school personnel, parent/guardian, or self-referral. The SEL offers screening and guidance for the student and their family to help navigate resources and services that may be available. The SEL will act as a liaison between the schools, the family and other involved agencies to help the student be successful. This program was devised by Jeffco Schools, Student Engagement office and is being implemented in our school by the SEL.

Funding Source:
Jeffco school district has made a significant commitment to social emotional learning across our district. This is evident in the installation of 31 Social Emotional Learning Specialists (SELS) beginning in the 2016-17 school year with funds from the board of education. Additional funds were sought out by Jeffco to support additional SELS work in elementary and high schools. The SELS at BLANK are funded by the Jeffco’s School Health Professional Grant. This grant was awarded to Jeffco by the Colorado Department of Education to support 6 SELS in elementary schools and 3 nurses in high schools to demonstrate the role of SEL in substance use and abuse prevention. More information about this grant program can be found at School and Health Professional Grant Program.
