About Our Department
The Office of Equity & Empowerment coordinates education, prevention and intervention programs and services to address the academic, behavioral, social/emotional, health, safety, and alternative education needs of students. The Office of Student Support Services works collaboratively with students, parents, staff and community partners to provide supports that increase student access to instruction and reduce barriers to success in school. Student support staff influence school policy and work to create systematic change to advance the well-being, academic success and lifelong achievement of students. Our role includes serving as advocates, consultants and liaisons between school, home and the community from initial school registration to graduation to adult education.
