Attendance Intervention Services
MVHS has one School Social Worker--Mr. Ruiz. School Social Workers are the link between school, home and community. Mr. Ruiz focuses on developing school-wide capacity to support students in two key areas: attendance and behavior. He serves the entire school population. He is a part of the Student Support Services team and works alongside School Counselors, Administrators, Teachers, and community partners to develop school-wide systems of support for students at risk of school disengagement, chronic absenteeism, and mental health problems. He offers brief supports for students and families experiencing personal, family, cultural, and environmental barriers to academic success.
