The Student Services Department’s goal is to insure that every student has what they need to be successful in school. We act as a resource to students, parents, and teachers to help facilitate the academic and developmental success of all students. We strive to promote belonging within the school and the community and foster independence so that the student will be successful inside and outside of school. We encourage students to be life long learners and active participants in our community.
