Supporting students in multiple ways is a main focus of our educational philosophy. As part of that commitment our teachers, Student Support Team, and guidance counselor work with students to provide academic and social emotional supports.
Brookfield Christian has a dedicated and multi-disciplinary support team that offers services in a variety of areas including academics, behavior, social-emotional and executive functioning. The level of support a student needs is determined by a collaborative team including the Director of Student Support Services, the student’s classroom teacher, classroom paraprofessionals, the Curriculum Coordinator, and the administrator. The team reviews multiple data points to inform and create a Student Support Plan (SSP). This plan includes learning targets and individualized goals, and, if necessary, specific accommodations, modifications or educational support structures that will help the student better access curriculum in the classroom setting. Additional testing may be recommended by the team based on the level of need identified. BCS actively partners with local public school special education experts as appropriate.
A part-time guidance counselor serves students at all levels. As part of her role, she makes visits to each classroom several times during the school year to talk about social-emotional issues such as bullying, making positive choices, building relationships, navigating peer dynamics, and more. She heads the middle school Student Advisory Council, assists with coordinating social events, and schedules chapel speakers for 6th-8th graders. Additionally, she coordinates activities for 8th grade students to learn more about future career opportunities. As needed, the guidance counselor provides individual and group counseling meetings.
