Our Intervention Team

Our Intervention Team

Social/emotional support and intervention is a collaboration between administrators, teachers, parents, counselors, school social workers and school psychologists.  By building student skills in communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, we prepare students for learning and for life. Our work covers prevention, as well as targeted and intensive intervention for those who need additional support.  

Each school has a building level crisis team that responds when unfortunate situations occur in a building.  If the crisis is more intense or wide spread, the building may also engage the district crisis team.  

District Mental Health Crisis Team

In the event of a student, parent or staff member death or other traumatic situation, the Douglas County School District's Crisis Team takes action. The District's mental health professionals and administrators work in conjunction with DCSD's Community Relations department and Douglas County law enforcement entities to provide assistance to our school communities.

How to find support and intervention

Each school has designated time from a school psychologist.  Most buildings also have designated time from a school social worker.  Each secondary school has counselors.  To locate your school counselor, please check the building's website.  Below are buttons to find the school psychologists and social workers who serve in your high school feeder.
