Dodge Connection – Communities in Schools of Dodge County provides needed services to schools and students:
Tier 1: School-Wide Services
Our school-wide services and resources are designed to foster a positive school climate and address school-level risk factors. They are short-term interventions that are provided on an as-needed basis. These services or resources are open to all students.
Examples of Tier 1 resources or services include motivational speakers for school-wide assemblies, career or college fairs, and school-wide anti-bullying programs.
Tier 2: Targeted Group Support
Our targeted group support activities are designed to help groups of students who are dealing with similar barriers. We implement programs and rely on our expert partners to provide support in areas where we don’t have specific expertise. Those areas include math and reading tutoring, anti-bullying programming, mentoring groups, backpack meals, risky behavior initiatives, and smoking cessation.
Tier 3: Individual Case Management
Our case management service is our most intense level of service and where we spend the majority of our time working with students. In conjunction with school staff, our interventions are guided by an integrated process of developing individualized support plans with each student and family and using that to guide, track, evaluate and adjust to fit the needs of each student we serve. Regular check-ins during school, supportive one-on-one sessions, home visits and referrals to outside support is crucial to ensure our students succeed.
