About Marchus

The Counseling and Education Program (CEP) at Floyd I. Marchus School in Concord provides special education services and integrated counseling for approximately 110 elementary, middle, and secondary school students who have been identified with significant emotional and behavioral needs. Students are referred to the CEP from any of 16 participating school districts of the Contra Costa County SELPA (Special Education Local Planning Area) and neighboring SELPAs.

The Marchus CEP is committed to providing an integrated program that fosters healthy social emotional development and academic achievement for students with significant behavioral and social-emotional challenges. Students will be educated in the least restrictive environment with the aim of transitioning to a less restrictive educational or community setting.

Within the educational environment, Marchus CEP staff consists of a professional support team which includes Psychologists, School Social Workers, School Nurse, Occupational Therapist, and Speech Therapist. These professionals work together to provide case management, group counseling, educational planning, behavioral intervention, transition services, crisis intervention and prevention, family consultation, as well as inter-agency coordination and other related services. Services for students who attend Marchus CEP are individualized according to their IEP.
