What is Grief Group?
Our Group Facilitators
When Does Grief Group Meet?
Group will meet every other week for approximately 11 weeks during the 2012-13 school year. Students will not miss the same class more than twice, and are responsible for making up all work missed in class. If you are unable to join our scheduled meeting, please let your group facilitators know.
The Ridgewood Assistance Program (RAP) Core Team supports and enhances the mission of Ridgewood High School by helping students be available for learning. This is accomplished through:
- Identifying both students and their needs in order to connect them to appropriate resources.
- Offering team facilitated groups tailors to the needs of the students involved.
- Providing support both inside and outside of the context of the classroom.
- Creating educational programming focused primarily on the affective domain.
How to Refer a Student
Students may refer themselves or may be referred by a fellow students, a parent/guardian, or a staff member. Student involvement in RAP is voluntary and no records of the student's participation will become part of the student's permanent record. Federal laws and regulation protect the confidentiality of information, whether or not recorded, about students' participation. Parents/guardians who do not wish their child participate in these groups must notify the school by September 19, 2012.
To refer a student, contact Mrs. Kathleen Leynes at 708-456-4242 ext. 283 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
