Student Services

Responsibilities

The Student Services Department’s mission is to provide high quality support services and guidance that contributes to the overall success of our students, teachers and administrators. Our support empowers teachers and administrators to make informed decisions that help to facilitate safe schools, attendance, quality learning environments, appropriate student behavior, teacher effectiveness and overall academic student achievement.

PROGRAMS AND SUPPORT SERVICES

Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports (PBIS)

PBIS is a proactive positive systems approach for creating and maintaining safe and effective learning environments in schools.  CFISD has 68 campuses currently implementing the PBIS system.   Since the implementation of the process, there has been a significant decrease in office referrals district-wide.

Ripple Effects

Ripple Effects is a computer-based learning tool for students that provides research-based cognitive, positive behavioral strategies. Included in the program are over 350 tutorials that provide engaging and interactive sessions that help students learn about controlling impulses, self-awareness, feelings management, assertiveness, decision-making, and making connections to the community. The program includes character education lessons as well as lessons used as interventions for bullying, drugs and other behavior issues.

Code of Conduct

The Student Code of Conduct is an online document that specifies the expectations for student behavior, the discipline management techniques that are utilized by teachers and administrators, and the consequences for student misconduct. Parents have easy access to the English and Spanish versions of the Code of Conduct and Student Handbook. Fill out the Feedback Form here  ~ [Español].

Service of Success

Service for Success is an opportunity developed by Student Services and the Alternative Learning Center as an option for students to complete their DAEP assignment through service in the community. It is only offered to students who are serving a placement at the end of the school year.

Campus Safety

The office of Campus Safety provides direction, training, and performs audits of all instructional and non-instructional facilities in the district. Campuses are audited on a three year cycle. Emergency drills address those areas that include shelter in place, secure the building, lockdowns, fire drills and evacuations. All campuses are required to complete their emergency drills within a designated timeline.

Admissions

The Department of Student Admissions, Attendance and Transfers implements enrollment requirements pertaining to residency and guardianship rules. The team develops and provides comprehensive training for district personnel related to policies and procedures for student admissions. In addition, assistance is provided to parents, guardians, and foreign exchange organizations in resolving issues related to admissions.

Transfers

The department provides support to students, campus and district personnel, and the community regarding all aspects of the Student Transfer Process. Training is provided to campus administrators, registrars, and district support staff detailing the student transfer policies and procedures.

The attendance officers work closely with school administration and the Justice of the Peace Courts in applying truancy prevention measures. The team conducts home visits for a variety of reasons, including non-attendance, locating drop-outs, and residence checks. Attendance Officers conduct leaver code audits with secondary school registrars and high school drop-out recovery specialists to ensure accurate data for leaver code documentation are in compliance with PEIMS Data Standards for leaver codes.

Services can be accessed on the Infoserv menu under Request for Attendance Officer Support.
