Director Student Services
From the Director
As the Director of Student Services, I am passionate about working with staff, parents, and students as we collaborate in support of learning for all students from preschool through graduation. Our department is here to be a resource to others, and we hope that the information shared on this web page can be used as a guide for those who have specific questions that need to be addressed. All students learn and develop differently throughout their school experience. Our goal is to support the specific needs of our learners in a way that maximizes their school experience academically, socially, and emotionally. As a district, we recognize that education varies for each child. We coordinate programming across the district for students identified as having disabilities and students who are English Language Learners. If you have specific questions or concerns, I encourage you to contact our office.
The Department of Student Services is staffed by the director, the coordinator of special education, five district psychologists, and a department secretary.
