Student Risk Behavior
With community partnerships and our students SMCPS has a standing purpose and focus on student education and prevention programs that directly address high-risk youth behaviors. These behaviors are defined as any behavior having a negative impact on the development, health, and well-being of students. The Superintendent and the elected student member to the Board of Education serve as the co-chairs of a Student Advisory Committee. The Superintendent's Student Advisory Committee provides a coordinated mechanism for input, collaboration, planning and development of school programs and process for all schools by current students. The scope of the advisory committee is inclusive of any processes that has an impact on SMCPS students and may include concerns pertaining to instructional and supporting functions of the organization.
If you ever feel that a student is a risk, please reach out to us by filing a report with SafeSchools.
