HEART

HEART is the name adopted by the school district for the student assistance program, which is a program of systematic responses to student problems in school.  HEART is an acronym for “Helping Educate At Risk Teens.”  HEART is coordinated by members of the professional staff who have received training in recognizing student behaviors that inhibit educational growth. Referral to HEART may be made by the school staff, parents, guardians, peers, concerned individuals, or the students themselves.  Referrals are made when academic success is affected by personal problems and/or inappropriate behavior.  Referral contacts are through a guidance counselor.  Confidentiality between students and staff will be respected and maintained in the best interest of the student. Anyone needing additional information should contact the guidance department.

Social Services

The mission of the Social Services Coordinator is to eliminate barriers to academic success for all students.  This mission calls for a variety of services including, but not limited to: assistance with applying for free and reduced lunch, coordination of welfare services with other state and local agencies, and attendance issues.  The Coordinator works closely with teachers, administrators, parents, outside organizations and, of course, students. The social services office is located in Susquehannock High School, but services are provided to students at all schools. General and specific questions about District social services should be addressed to 717-235-4811

Special Education

A full range of special education services is provided by the Southern York County School District.  Programs provided directly by the District include those for students who have a specific learning disability, emotional disturbance, mental retardation, speech or language impairment, a hearing impairment, autism, traumatic brain injury, visual impairment, early childhood developmental problems, or other health impairment. If you require general or specific information about special education services, please contact the Director of Special Education, Brendan Rodgers. If teachers or staff suspect that a student might be in need of specially designed instruction, a school team reviews records and diagnostic data.  At the elementary level, the school team is called an Instructional Support Team.  At the middle school and high school, the team is called a Student Study Team.  Conclusions are drawn by the school team as to whether or not adaptations or modifications can be made to the student’s educational program that will address the needs of the student, or if a referral for a multidisciplinary evaluation and further assessment is recommended. If a parent wishes to request a multidisciplinary evaluation, the school district asks the parent to provide the child’s building principal with written permission for the evaluation to begin.  Any parent who requests a multidisciplinary evaluation of a resident child not attending Southern schools should send the written request to the Director of Special Education.
