Mental Health Support

 

The Wissahickon School District believes that a student’s social and emotional well-being is critical to their overall educational experience. Positive social and emotional well-being helps students achieve better school outcomes as well as create positive social circles. Social and emotional well-being can be highly affected by a change in routine, a negative event, and/or feelings of vulnerability. As a district, it is essential for all students to feel safe and supported.

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a systematic framework to ensure successful academic, behavioral, and social-emotional outcomes for all students using data-driven processes and evidence-based instruction, interventions, and practices.
