Student Support Services

Welcome back, Eagles! 
We have missed y'all so much, and we can't wait to see all of your bright shining faces even through a computer screen. We know the start of the 2020 - 2021 school year will look a little different than other years. However, Student Support Services (S.S.S.) is still here for you! For those of you wondering, what the heck is S.S.S.?! Check out our video above to learn more. Please reach out to us if there is anything we can do for you! 
 
Changes to S.S.S. due to the covid-19 pandemic:
ALL 1 on 1 and groups to be conducted virtually as long as virtual learning is being conducted
Groups will be held virtually Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday from 10:35 - 11:05 am AND 4:45 - 5:15 pm
ALL appointments must be scheduled and conducted virtually in order to protect the safety of our students, staff, and school
 
Please contact us by email at margaret.scamardo@austinisd.org or by phone at (737) 231 - 0201 or (512) 841 - 9878 if you have any questions about these changes or if there is anything else we can do for you.

Learn more about Student Support Services (S.S.S.):

Student Support Services offers support and services to students at Akins. That support can be individual counseling services for support during a time of crisis or ongoing support when needed. We offer group services and connection to resources in the community.

 

We have groups on topics including but not limited to: Anger Management, Emotions Management (helpful in discovering ways to better cope with emotions like depression or anxiety), Girls Empowerment, Healthy Relationships, LGBTQ Support, Pregnancy and Parenting Support, and a Grief & Loss Support Group.

 

We can assist with students needing clothing resources, backpacks and school supplies, shelter options, and access to mental health services in the community. 

Basically, we do and will do anything to help our Akins students be successful here and in life!
