About Wellness Teams
DPS is committed to serving the whole child through effective school-based teams that bring together multiple perspectives on student wellness. This page offers resources and ideas to support planning for SEL and MTSS interventions.
Wellness is integrative in that it requires balancing our emotions, body, mind, and spirit. DPS Wellness teams are structured to honor that balance, and this section highlights resources that support teams as they serve our DPS students through that lens.
