General Information
Description of ServiceProvides an academic setting with a multidisciplinary team to meet the needs of students with learning, behavioral, emotional and developmental disabilities. The instructional program is aligned to the New York State Common Core Learning Standards and addresses students' cognitive levels and learning styles. Students are given the opportunity to work toward earning a New York State Regents diploma or other state approved high school diploma. Instructional and work-based learning opportunities required for the Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) Commencement Credential are also provided for all ninth graders. Students meeting the requirements towards a Skills and Credentials Certificate (SACC) work toward developing life skills and build personal independence. The school-wide Positive Behavior and Intervention and Supports (PBIS) program provides concrete lessons toward positive interactions. Pro-social skills to develop appropriate social and emotional behaviors are integrated into activities that encourage interaction with teachers and peers and build upon the student’s critical thought processes and independence. The Willet Avenue Middle School offers unique learning opportunities including the Therapeutic Learning Collaborative (TLC) which consists of two programs: Intensive Support Program (ISP) and Transitional Support Program (TSP) .A partnership between Nassau BOCES and The North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center, the ISP provides individual, group, and family counseling by North Shore licensed, clinical social workers and psychiatrists. Psychiatric services including medication distribution are provided by North Shore and monthly family counseling sessions are required to remain in ISP. The TSP provides services for students who are ready to transition to a less restrictive environment. Students in TSP continue in their educational placement and receive individual and group counseling from BOCES psychologists, social workers or guidance counselors. Nassau BOCES psychologists provide counseling on a regular basis, are trained in crisis prevention and assess students’ needs for a Behavior Intervention Plan. The school social worker provides counseling, family support services such as SSI, respite and CPS whenever necessary. The guidance counselor provides counseling, assists in the student’s individual transitional plan (beginning at age 14) and helps students to obtain working papers. Call for detailed information.
