The Office of Student Life oversees the work of school social workers and related district programs.
Numerous factors can contribute to a student becoming at-risk at any level in his or her academic growth. In its support of the district's mission to afford the highest level of teaching and learning, and build an effective and efficient community of learning and character, the Office of Student Life has a cadre of intervention and referral programs and services readily available. Students exhibiting learning or behavioral problems are assisted through the implementation of numerous early intervention strategies. In an effort to alleviate all issues that could prevent or interfere with success and academic growth, certain resources are provided to students and families. These resources, examples of which are listed below, build the foundation for positive behavior, health and wellness and sound academic performance.
