Student Success Center (SSC)

  • FistAbout the Program

    The Student Success Center is an intensive skills intervention program that disproportionately serves historically underrepresented students in PPS who have been referred for expulsion. The Student Success Program aims to disrupt racialized exclusionary practices through building authentic relationships, skill acquisition in social emotional learning, advocacy, and role-modeling racial equity.

    SSC serves PPS students in grades 6th through 12th who have had a hearing and a hearings officer has deemed that the student is willing to participate in the program and address the behaviors that are getting in the way of student success.

    The program offers a 3-week intensive behavioral skill intervention, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm, which includes:

    • Emotional Regulation
    • Conflict Regulation
    • Healthy Choices
    • Decision-making/Goal setting
    • Collaborate with school staff and the designated transition support person at the student's school
    • Develop a strength-based re-engagement plan which includes recommendations from school-based or community-based Mental Health/Drug/Alcohol Assessments
    • Facilitate a re-engagement meeting at the home school which welcomes the student back and to go over their re-engagement plan and school's expectations
