San Bruno Park School District’s Student Services Department supports students with programs and services to meet individual needs, which encompasses health including social/emotional/behavioral health, attendance, discipline, and the transfer process.
Grants from Peninsula Health Care District (totaling over one million dollars) have assisted the District in funding support for a Student Health Center/Wellness Coordinator who works closely with our schools to better engage parents in the importance of good health and good attendance equating to student success.
The District provides an “in house” team of specialists in the areas of positive behavior intervention, small group counseling and conflict resolution and individual counseling and guidance. The team, comprised of mental health clinicians, behavior therapists, psychologists, and counselors, provides direct, individual support to students as well as classroom and teacher support.
The District’s Attendance Matters! Initiative is an effective approach to helping parents and students alike understand the importance of children being in school – that learning opportunities cannot be replaced when students miss class. With funding from San Bruno Education Foundation, contracting with In Class Today (using Harvard University research-based methods), and the diligent efforts by parents, school parent liaisons, teachers and principals, the District’s rate of chronic absenteeism is below the average of county and statewide absenteeism. Of significance is the increase in attendance among English Language Learners, students with disabilities and students in foster care.
