The Student Support Services Department provides leadership in the programs and services which support the academic, social, behavioral, and emotional development of all students. Our greatest potential for success lies in our cooperative and collaborative efforts with other departments, campuses, parents, students, and community organizations to meet the individual needs of all students.

The Role of Student Support Services

Student Support Services focuses on an integrated delivery of services. The Student Support Services Department provides support in many areas to enable the provision of specialized services to students as well as direct support to school site programs as needs arise. In addition, the Student Support Services Department provides training and support to district and school site personnel to assist them in their efforts to be in compliance with legal requirements as they pertain to topics and situations within the scope of student services.
