Pupil Support Services

Under the broad umbrella of Pupil Support Services, a diversely trained staff provides many services. Included in the staff are administrators, specialists, school psychologists, school social workers, school nurses, teachers, and truancy workers.

All districted schools and programs are provided direct services through Pupil Support Services. Each school/program is assigned a direct contact, a Pupil Support Services Specialist, responsible for facilitating those needed services. Each member of the Pupil Support Services team works together to assist schools and staff, and provide needed training and information.

Our Mission

The mission of Pupil Support Services is to support and promote academic achievement, citizenship, and readiness for work in the global community for all students by identifying, coordinating, and providing resources and services.
