Ash Fork Joint Unified District
A variety of evidence-based strategies will be utilized including classroom and systems interventions as found in PBISworld and through the MTSS process, addressing academic as well as social-emotional needs. Counseling strategies will include the instruction of mindfulness strategies, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and other trauma-informed practices at the individual and small group level of intervention. The population at Ash Fork Joint Unified School District includes students with special needs, many low-income and homeless families, English learners, and migrant/ranch families. Ash Fork is a small rural community with limited access to technology, internet, therapy, and medical services. School Psychologist services will help address pandemic-related needs by attempting to fill in the gap between needs and available resources.
