Good Spirit Student Services collaborate with schools teams and families to provide intervention, support, consulting, and assessment for the 27 K – 12 schools within the division. Our vision is to create a safe, healthy, and supportive learning environment for all students. At our schools you will see these team members working with classrooms, teachers, and peer groups to ensure "Learning Without Limits – Achievement for All."
The Student Services team celebrates diversity and works with schools to support learners in an inclusion model. We strive to ensure students come first and provide a variety of services which can be accessed through a conversation with the school team and a referral for Student Services.
