    The Cheektowaga CSD is proud to offer a full range of student support services to include individual and group counseling for students.  All students have the ability daily to access the services through the counseling centers in each respective building.  The counseling staff are fully equipped to work with students and their families if referrals are needed to local agencies for support as well.  Social Emotional Learning is of the highest priority in our district with a focus on positive mental health literacy in our schools.  We utilize a Trauma Informed approach and apply the use of Restorative Practices daily, within our respective buildings.
