The Student Success Department promotes student achievement through educational programs and services that support the social-emotional, physical and mental health, and behavioral needs of students. This includes a wide variety of programs such as counseling and guidance, prevention programs, and wellness programs. The Student Success Team collaborates with schools on truancy prevention, substance abuse prevention education, suicide prevention education, and bullying prevention education as well as supporting districtwide restorative practices and PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Supports). The team also collaborates with the Safety and Security Team, the Directors of Elementary, Secondary, and Culture, Language, and Equity, as well as school staff, to ensure our schools are welcoming, inclusive, supportive, and safe.
