ABOUT STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES

  • Students and families can find age-appropriate support and resources for family changes, chemical dependency, eating disorders, mental health, and social/emotional concerns, along with college and career readiness.

    Our District employs counselors, psychologists, school resource officers, social workers, and other professionals to provide appropriate services to meet the needs of individual students and families.

    We invite you to contact our Student Support Services staff using our Staff Directory.

    District counselors have compiled a variety of student support resources for use at home. Please visit our Virtual Resources page to explore topics that provide mental health support, calming strategies, and resources for play.

    To get to know our staff and the services the District provides, please view this presentation from the December 14, 2020 meeting of the Sartell-St. Stephen Substance-Free Coalition.
