Two of the most powerful influences on childhood success are community and school: Student Support Center integrates both parts to provide a holistic development model to help students succeed.

Student Support Center (SSC) is an educational organization that intends to create and sustain positive and productive learning environments where students are safe, respected and nurtured intellectually, physically and emotionally. The organization provides training and coaching to early childhood teachers aimed at enhancing their instructional skills, and also provides school staff with training on how to implement behavior management, emergency prevention, and parent involvement programs. Additionally, SSC helps develop school-based and family-centered support services to meet the social and emotional needs of students and their families. SSC also offers professional development trainings and leadership coaching in areas such as school improvement planning, teacher supervision, organizational management and other instructional best practices.
