An Afternoon with the O3S

March 22 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

The Central Aroostook Council on Education is proud to present the Maine Department of Education’s Office of School and Student Support on March 22, 12:30-3:00 at the University of Maine at Presque Isle’s Multipurpose Room!

Within the Maine Department of Education, the role of the Office of School and Student Supports (O3S) is to ensure that Maine schools are inclusive, healthy, safe, and supportive communities where every student thrives. O3S endeavors to coordinate resources and programs that promote equitable, psycho-socially, physically, and environmentally healthy school communities for all.​ The Climate, Culture and Resilience team provides resources, guidance, and technical support to SAUs through a trauma-informed approach. As an action-oriented team supporting educators, CCR provides expertise in Social Emotional Learning and Intelligence, Family Engagement, Cultural Responsiveness, and Mental Health, as well as Migrant and McKinney Vento-identified student support.

School Climate refers to the many aspects of students’ educational experience that influence their social, emotional, and academic development. The climate of a school can impact student engagement in school activities; relationships with other students, staff, family, and community; and academic performance. A positive social and emotional school climate is conducive to effective teaching and learning. Such climates promote health, growth, and development by providing a safe and supportive learning environment.The collective responsibility in the school building is a big lift.  We often present these topics to educators, administrators, and support staff.  We see an impact when everyone knows about these programs and or resources.

Join Melanie Junkins, Amelia Rukema and Kellie Bailey as they present an in-depth review of the important services their office can provide our schools in Central Aroostook County.
