SEL Interventionists

What is an SEL Interventionist?

The Social Emotional Learning Interventionist (SEL Interventionist) significantly contributes to the development of a healthy, safe, and caring environment. Such an environment is achieved by advancing the understanding of the social-emotional development of children and the influences of family, community, and cultural differences on student success along with the implementation of effective intervention strategies. The SEL Interventionist promotes and enhances the overall academic mission of Franklin Community Schools by providing services that are student-centered, innovative and strengthen home, school, and community partnerships and address barriers to learning and achievement.

The SEL Interventionist's currently work at CBIS, FCMS and FCHS providing mental health, case management services and resources addressing barriers that limit a student from receiving the full benefit from their educational experience. The SEL Interventionist will appropriately triage students and assess risk, provide short-term solution-focused counseling, skills development, intervention supports, and coordinate with school counselors, administration and outside agencies and be a mental health resource for the students and school as a whole.
