The CSI Program in Clovis Unified School District aims to identify and connect students with the necessary supports to help them more effectively navigate many of life's challenges. CSI is a district-wide program offering educational support groups that focus on listening and communication skills, empathy, acceptance, self-awareness and supporting others. The foundation of CSI is the student support group process which helps empower students to more successfully address factors related to stress, conflict, relationships, grief/loss, self-regulation, family discord, self-image and decision-making. The confidential nature of these groups offers a safe place where students connect with peers in weekly group sessions facilitated by two staff members who have undergone rigorous training to become a CSI Group Facilitator. The educational premise of CSI is based on the plethora of peer-reviewed scientific research showing that promoting and supporting the mental health of students improves overall student educational outcomes.
