"Helping Students Soar"

  • Department of Student Services Philosophy

     We believe all students are capable of learning.  Our goal is for  students to participate and contribute as fully as possible in the communities in which they live and be educated within the least restrictive environment appropriate to meet their needs.  We strive to create an environment that is safe and comfortable for the students.  We believe that family and school collaboration are essential factors in supporting a student’s learning and development. In the Department of Student Services mutual respect and collaboration are expected and infused into all of our working partnerships.
