Student Services

We are dedicated to developing and implementing a continum of services to meet the needs of ALL our students. We understand the diverse learning needs of each of our students. Our team strives to support students, parents, and teachers to allow each student to acquire knowledge and develop skills necessary to be successful after high school. Welcome to our district where "ALL means ALL."

504 Services

Section 504 is a civil rights statute intended to eliminate obstacles to full educational participation by students with disabilities. In order to be qualified for assistance under Section 504, the student must be between the ages of three (3) and twenty-one (21) years of age and meet the definition of “disabled.” A student is disabled if he/she (1). has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities (2). has a record of such impairment, or (3). is regarded as having such an impairment.

English Language Learners (ELL)

English Language Learners (ELL) are a diverse population of students who are learning English in school. They come from numerous cultural and economic backgrounds. Although many ELL students have developed basic communication skills in English, they struggle with academic language. This disconnect can make classroom instruction difficult, and it requires modified instruction in the student’s academic courses.

Exceptional Student Services (ESS)

Exceptional Student Services (ESS) provides education to students who, because of an identified disability, require specially designed instruction and related services in order to receive a free, appropriate public education. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) team determines specific services to meet the unique needs of each student which may include counseling, technology devices, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and language therapy, transportation, or other supports.

Gifted & Talented Education

Gifted and talented students are children of lawful school age who, due to superior intellect and/or advanced learning ability, are not afforded an opportunity for otherwise attainable progress and development in regular classroom instruction and who need comprehensive gifted education services to achieve levels that commensurate with the child's intellect and ability. Gifted education services are offered to all students who score at or above the 97th percentile on a verbal, quantitative, and/or nonverbal battery, or a composite score at or above the 95th percentile of a test included on the Arizona State-Approved Gifted Test List.

Psychology Services

All children and youth can face problems from time to time related to learning, social relationships, making difficult decisions, and/or managing emotions such as feeling depressed, anxious, worried, or isolated. School Psychologists help students, families, educators, and members of the community understand and resolve both long-term, chronic problems and short-term issues that students may face. They are a highly skilled and ready resource in the effort to ensure that all children and youth thrive in school, at home, and in life.

Speech Language Services

Speech Language Pathologists (SLP) are experts in communication. They work with students who have speech, language, thinking, and swallowing impairments to successfully communicate and succeed in their academic environment. They work with students regarding speech sounds, language, literacy, social communication, voice, and fluency.
