Division of School Support
We believe students need comprehensive and integrated services that are prompt and convenient for student/family access. We know that effective service programs are coordinated and implemented by appropriately trained and credentialed professionals.
The Division of School Support provides services to students, parents, and school staffs which help all students learn and grow in a safe, healthy, and caring environment. As advocates for students and families, we maintain an awareness and respect the unique needs, differences, and contributions of diverse populations.
Research studies emphasize the importance of effective support services relative to academic and career success. Students who receive social-emotional support and prevention services achieve better in school Students who are emotionally, physically, and socially healthy are better learners and will be primed to compete for good jobs in a global labor market. Expanded school mental health services in schools have been found to reduce special education referrals; improve aspects of the school climate and produce declines in disciplinary referrals, suspensions, grade retention, and special education referrals and placement among at-risk students.
During the course of a child's life, there are times when individual attention and care are necessary for a student. Below, you will find a list of services within our district for those times when students need direction or have extraordinary circumstances.
