WPUSD provides student support through a variety of programs and services.

Programs During the School DayTop of Page

Many support programs are available to students during the school day for academic, behavioral and/or emotional support. Contacting your child's teacher, principal, school counselor or school psychologist is the best way to learn about these programs. 

A Student Study Team (SST) meeting or series of meetings can be scheduled to bring together a team of caring adults and parents to look more deeply into a child's needs in these areas.  Beginning with the 2013 - 2014 school year, the District has created the position of Mental Health Specialist, funded through categorically restricted Educationally Related Mental Health Services resources, to provide leadership, support, and consulting services to assist in meeting the mental health needs of students and families.  

For more information on any of these services, please contact your child's teacher or your school principal.
