Counseling Supports:

Individual and Group Counseling

- A strengths-based, solution-focused approach is used with all students

- 1:1 counseling supports are available as needed and continual support

- Group counseling based on recommendations each quarter

- Students may request on their own a ‘walk in’ counseling session, or be referred by a teacher, staff member, family, or administrator


Schoolwide Guidance Curriculum

- Provided during elective courses and aligned with Schoolwide Learning Results and IKAIR core values

- Focus will be on social and emotional needs for students

- Topics may include: diversity and appreciation of all, harassment and bullying prevention, college and career readiness activities, self-esteem, self-harm and suicidal ideation prevention, problem solving and conflict resolution skills building


Social-Emotional-Learning and Character

- Schoolwide, monthly Character Traits will be focused on and lessons provided in advisory. Students will learn about the characteristics as well as be able to earn a reward at the end of each month if they are noted as demonstrating this trait. Stay tuned as incentives are announced and those who earn them are rewarded!


Advisory Ambassadors

- Each week, Dr. Martinson will meet with a representative from each Advisory schoolwide to hear their input on how things are going in school. We will review the character lessons and get student input, as well as work to promote each trait in all classes. Students recommended for this role are also those who demonstrate leadership potential and can support their homeroom students by modeling the IKAIR core values and helping peers as needed during advisory. In addition, should new students join our school, ambassadors will support these classmates in learning our campus, bell schedule, and building relationships.


Student Services Coordinator (SSC)


Role

- The SSC serves as a point of contact to address student needs and assure every student has access to a free and appropriate public education. The SSC oversees Special Education, 504, and related services at the school, supports the development and implementation of individualized plans, and coordinates resources within the school and community.


Counselor/Student Services Coordinator Combination


Response to Intervention (RtI)

- Response to Intervention (RtI) is a multi-tiered approach that strives to ensure that all students receive necessary supports to meet their full potential from a learning and behavioral standpoint. These tiered supports will be different for each student, as no two are the same. Dr. Martinson will meet weekly with each grade level to discuss the progress of all haumana and determine what added supports could be provided.


Parent/Guardian Role and FERPA


- Please keep in touch! If your phone number or email changes, or mailing address, please let the office know so we can keep in contact.


- Many meetings require the parent or guardian to be present in order to give permission to make decisions on the services provided to your keiki. If, however, you are unable to attend a meeting, please contact Dr. Martinson and we can work together to ensure the supports can continue with your permission.
