Behavior and Social-Emotional Systems of Support
The Counseling & Guidance page has been updated to reflect the broader scope of the systems of support that are in place for Otsego students.
Otsego Public Schools’ Student Support Services (SSS) team is composed of counselors, social workers, behavioral specialists and a psychologist along with other support personnel. The focus of the SSS team is to help students navigate the social/emotional/behavioral challenges associated with their developmental ages. The SSS team can help students with tangible needs such as clothing, food, and community resources; they can also help with everything from mental health needs to friendship issues.
