Student Support Team
The Student Support Team (SST) exists to help classroom teachers identify students that are having difficulty either academically or behaviorally and to recommend alternative instructional strategies for that student. The team reviews and considers all available information about an individual student. Parents and/or teachers can refer a student to the SST committee. If a parent has any questions concerning the referral process, he or she should contact either the student's teacher or assistant principal.
Academic Assistance Program
These programs provide an intervention for students who do not achieve a passing grade after 1st semester. AAP information sheets and schedules are sent home with students in report card envelopes in January.
School counseling services are available to all students. A counselor is assigned to homeroom teachers within grade levels. The goal for the guidance and counseling program is to help students be academically and personally successful. The Jones Middle School Counselors will work closely with “at-risk” students in order to help these students be more successful.
