CSI: Clovis Support & Intervention

What is CSI?

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.

Who is CSI for?

Everyone faces challenges. Whether it is building friendships, adjusting to a new school, dealing with family changes or working through the loss of a loved one, CSI groups can help support students through difficult circumstances. Students of all ages can benefit from the meaningful connections and age-appropriate communication skills gained through participating in CSI. We offer nearly 300 groups each year, supporting more than 2000 students across the district.
