Student Support Groups and Services

Delta Sierra provides ongoing support for our students and families.

School Counselors  & School Psychologist: Our school counselors and psychologist are employees of the district and provide individual and group counseling support for students and families.

School Counselor Interns:  Lodi Unified School District has formed a partnership with CSU Sacramento and Stanislaus school of counselor education.  This has resulted in Delta Sierra Middle School receiving the services of graduate students who are serving as interns through the school of counselor education.  The interns have parent permission slips outlining the scope of services.  Once parents have signed the permission slips then additional work for the interns can be provided.

Why Try?  Strength-based program designed to help young people overcome their challenges and improve outcomes in the areas of truancy, behavior management, decision-making and academics.  Topics Covered:  Goals, Family Patterns, Self, Personal Strengths, Anger Management, Peer Pressure, Identifying & Overcoming Obstacles, Desire, Time, & Effort, Training & Preparation, and Finding Resources & a support system.  These topics will be covered in groups that will meet for 1 alternating class period throughout the day, one day a week for 14 weeks.

Point Break:  Helping teenagers and parents develop resiliency skills and access resources.  The purpose is to be a resource for parents, schools, and community groups in San Joaquin County, and overcome risky behavior.

Mentoring and Emerging Young Leaders:  To provide supplemental support to students with the help of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.  Students cover various topics related to school, hygiene, careers, the transition to high school and college, culture, and interpersonal skills.

Student and Family Empowerment Program (SAFE): The SAFE Program is designed to provide support services to students and families in order to address core issues that hinder success at school.  The SAFE model allows a team of service providers to work together in the same neighborhood to provide consistent and comprehensive support throughout the child's education career.

Positive Behavior Support (PBIS):  The PBIS is a multi-tiered prevention framework guiding the implementation and sustainability of evidence-based interventions to meet the academic, behavior and socio-emotional needs of all students.
