  • BCSSSD Community Embraces the Tri-State Canine Response Team to address SEL

    Posted by Dr. Nagy on 6/15/2021 1:00:00 PM
    During the pandemic, the BCSSSD school community has had the pleasure of partnering with the Tri-State Canine Response Team. Team members and their dogs have met consistently throughout the year with seven classes virtually via Zoom. The classes have practiced asking questions as part of their social skills goals, have learned about how dogs handle stress as part of our Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) counseling, and pet care as it relates to life skills.  
    Today from 12pm-2pm, the campus hosted our first ever Pet Parade where the students had the opportunity to meet the dog assigned to their class as well as the handler and to see the other dogs from the Tri-State Canine Response Team. This is a valuable service to our students and is a great way to involve all on our campuses. We look forward to continuing this partnership next year. I want to thank Dr. Bobbie Downs for taking the lead to bring the Team to our District.
