    Student Services provides student support in the following areas: attendance, discipline, counseling, health, and child welfare. Our department's goal is to provide comprehensive services that will assist the student in achieving a successful and rewarding educational experience in our district. A few of the areas the department is responsible for include the Annual Notification to Parents/Guardians; student rights and due process; expulsion hearings and procedures; enrollment procedures; attendance policies; interdistrict permits; intradistrict transfers; residency verifications; and the School Attendance Review Board.

    Special Education is provided to students who meet eligibility criteria. These students receive specialized academic instruction and related services designed to meet their special education needs, as recommended in their Individualized Education Program (IEP). 

    Health Services is responsible for the overall health and development of our students, including communicable disease control, scoliosis, vision, and hearing testing.
