The Calming Room
Life can be overwhelming, anxiety invoking, and stressful. The Virtual Calming Room uses several relaxation techniques to provide healthy outlets for stressful times. This Virtual Calming Room was inspired by School Counselors and School Social Workers across the United States to help students locate tools and strategies to positively manage their emotions.
Response to Intervention
Response to Intervention is a multi-level framework that integrates instruction, assessment, and intervention within a schoolwide prevention system to maximize student achievement and reduce behavior problems.
Through school-wide screening, students who need a targeted or intensive approach to learn are identified. Interventions are implemented, progress is monitored and data-based decision making occurs to determine the next steps for each student.

PSEO (Postsecondary Enrollment Options)
Postsecondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) is a program that allows 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students to earn both high school and college credit while still in high school, through enrollment in and successful completion of college nonsectarian courses at eligible participating postsecondary institutions. Most PSEO courses are offered on the campus of the postsecondary institution; some courses are offered online. Each participating college or university sets its own admissions requirements for enrollment into the PSEO courses. Eleventh and 12th-grade students may take PSEO courses on a full- or part-time basis; 10th graders are eligible to enroll in PSEO on a more limited basis. Students must meet the PSEO residency and eligibility requirements and abide by participation limits specified in Minnesota Statutes, section 124D.09. If a school district determines a pupil is not on track to graduate, she/he may continue to participate in PSEO on a term-by-term basis.
