Student Support Services 6-12 Overview
MissionThe mission of the Student Support Services Department is to build connections between home and school especially when parents need help in understanding their child’s educational needs and their own role in encouraging learning. Our greatest potential for success lies in our cooperative and collaborative efforts with other departments, campuses, parents, students, and community organizations to meet the individual needs of all students.
The Role of Student Support Services 6-12
While the Mission of Support Services for grades 6-12 is the same as it is for grades K-5, the support is manifested differently in the middle schools and high schools. Support Services (6-12) serves as the initial point of contact for our families and community stakeholders in nearly all non-instructional matters related to our schools.
Support Services responds to concerns about school-level discipline and school attendance/residency, and facilitates any Board of Education appeal hearings related to these topics.
Finally, 6-12 Support Services takes an active role in the professional development and training of the assistant principals in Union County Public Schools.
Additional Functions of Student Support Services Include:
- Processes requests for student transfers and student releases.
- Facilitates transfer appeal hearings.
- Assist parents with questions regarding school assignment, enrollment requirements, discipline issues, and school-level concerns and/or complaints.
