Student Services

The mission of the Student Services Department is to effectively address barriers to learning and teaching and implement the appropriate programs that will enable students to learn and teachers to teach; create a supportive, positive environment that maximizes learning and well-being; and help to strengthen families and communities.

Act 1 0f 2022: Supporting Graduation for Students Experiencing Education Instability

Students experiencing homelessness, and youth who have been adjudicated or are involved in the juvenile justice system often attend multiple schools in a year. These students who experience such “education instability” face barriers to high school graduation due to lost or unrecognized credits or a student’s inability to take a course required by their last school.

Act 1 of 2022 (Act 1) was enacted to remove educational and graduation barriers for students who move between school entities due to homelessness, adjudication, foster care, and juvenile justice or court-ordered placements. Act 1 requires school entities assign a point of contact, adopt clear policies and practices to apply credit for satisfactorily completed coursework, and develop a graduation plan for students experiencing education instability. Act 1 also includes protections to facilitate equal access to school, including participating in extracurricular opportunities. If you feel your child may qualify for Act 1 support, please contact the high school principal.

Homeless Youth

We have an obligation to ensure that homeless students have access to the same educational programs and services that we provide to all students in our district. We strive to find and identify homeless youth and waive all barriers for enrollment, attendance, and transportation to encourage every student’s success.
