The Student Services Department provides student support. Our goal is to provide comprehensive services that will assist the students in achieving a successful and rewarding education experience in our District.
We are comprised of a group of highly skilled, caring professionals who are committed to improving student achievement by working with students, their parents, schools, and community agencies to assist with health, attendance, psychological, and behavioral concerns.
Student Services is the home base for the St. Lucie Public Schools Crisis Intervention
Team. This team of highly trained personnel respond at a moments notice when a
crisis occurs that impacts school students and/or staff.
