    The mission of Student Services is whole human learning.

    • We support the creation of safe, positive, and restorative learning environments with a focus on relationships, rituals, routines, and student voice and choice.
    • We empower schools and educators to provide integrated universal supports for all scholars, as well as targeted and intensive interventions for scholars in need.
    • We ensure the provision of individualized services that honor the identities and leverage the strengths of learners within our special populations.
