From time to time, students and families encounter challenges that can make it difficult for the student to be successful in the school environment. The school social worker is there to help students and parents through these difficult times. In the middle school, individual counseling is used on both a short and long-term basis to help students find success socially, emotionally and behaviorally in the classroom and school environment.
The school social worker serves as the link between school, home and community. If you have a need or concern, please contact your school social worker to discuss the problem and learn about community services available to help.
Chenango Valley Central School District utilizes the Olweus Bullying Prevention program. The program has four anti-bullying rules we subscribe to:
- We will not bully others.
- We will try to help students who are bullied.
- We will try to include students who are left out.
- If we know that somebody is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and an adult at home.
At Chenango Valley Middle School, students learn how to build specific skills to handle bullying, become defenders of the victim, character education and ways to make the middle school a better place.
