Student Services

The Department of Student Services provides a wide array of assistance programs and
comprehensive services to students, staff and parents. 

New pressures on communities, families and schools have resulted in more at-risk students.  The Student Support staff works in collaboration with other professionals and community agencies in order to meet numerous needs.  Staff members address a myriad of issues including career education/planning, self-esteem, interpersonal relations, absenteeism, peer mediation, school safety and mental and physical health.  Student Services are coordinated programs of specialized services to students and families.
