Section 504

Our school counselors at Riverside High School serve as the 504 contact for students who receive accommodations under a 504 plan.  Mrs. Leavelle serves students whose last name starts with A - K while Mrs. Riddick serves students with last names L - Z.  If you, or your student has a question about Section 504; please contact your designated school counselor.



McKinney-Vento is a federal program to protect students who are currently facing housing instability.  If you, or your family are struggling with a permanent place of your own to live, please reach out to your school counselor for support.  The goal of McKinney-Vento is to remove barriers that could prevent you from attending school.

School-Based Therapy

In partnership with the Family Wellness Center, Riverside High School offers outpatient therapy to be provided to your student while they are in school.  A referral can only be completed with parental consent and is kept confidential.  If this would be a resource you would like more information about, please contact your school counselor.

Alternative School Settings

Martin County Schools offers several different academic settings for students who are struggling in the traditional school setting.  All referrals are based on student's eligibility.  If your student is struggling at school, we strongly encourage you to stay involved and reach out to your student's teachers.  If you found this unsuccessful; or need help in contacting teachers, please contact your student's school counselor to assist you.
