Message from the Director:



Welcome to the 2022 – 2023 school year. Our staff are excited to work with students assigned to South Metro GNETS to make progress in the area of social emotional functioning. Our work will continue to focus on assisting students develop the social skills needed to be successful in less restrictive environments. 

During these unprecedented times South Metro GNETS continues to focus on improving the therapeutic and mental health supports offered through our program. We are excited that during the 2022 – 2023 school year we will be implementing concepts from the Neurosequential Model in Education (NME).  Our staff will be engaged all school year in learning and implementing this neuroscientific approach to education in their classrooms. 

 The South Metro GNETS classrooms place great emphasis on using individual student data to develop an individualized approach for helping students learn to manage their feelings and create processes for making better choices. 

South Metro remains committed to providing the instructional, therapeutic, and clinical supports needed by students experiencing emotional and behavioral challenges.  Our charge is to positively impact a student’s ability to self-regulate and self-management in a less restrictive environment.
