Creating Pathways and Removing Barriers

I am happy to be working as the Director of Pupil Personnel and Student Support Services for the Simpson County Schools.  The primary goal of this office is to create pathways to student success and remove barriers that may exist.  We know that all students will be succesful when provided the proper support.  With the support services we currently have in place it is our mission to accomplish the following things: 

  • Increase communication between the schools and the families we serve
  • Help students and their families access the resources they need in order to succeed at a high level
  • Improve student attendance
  • Provide positive behavior supports for students in a consistent manner from the time they enter our school district to the time they leave our school district.
  • Give students and their families the information they need in order to live a healthier life
  • Help students make good decisions that will contribute to their overall health and wellness
  • Create safe, caring, and nurturing environment
