School Attendance and Student Behavior Training Opportunities

LSS Mentoring Services invites people to join us for two training opportunities in May.

On Monday, May 8, Traci Jensen will talk about how schools respond to attendance issues. Traci works in Student Support Services for the Sioux Falls School District. When a student is identified as having attendance issues, a team of professionals work together to get students to school. Traci will also share what the role of Social Workers in the schools and what students needs are. Please Please email us at or call 444-7803 to RSVP for this session on May 8, 12-1 PM at LSS, 705 E 41st Street.

The second training in May will focus on student behavior. On May 17, Paula Terpstra, Counselor at Horace Mann will present on student behavior. She will focus on elementary aged children and will talk about the Boys Town Model for managing challenging behaviors. The model relies on healthy relationships for children at school as well as explicit teaching of social skills. The model has been used for more than 30 years by Boys Town and has been used in the Sioux Falls School District for the past few years. Please email us at or call 444-7803 to RSVP for this session on May 17 at Horace Mann Elementary, 1401 E 26th Street.
