The Pupil Services Department's purpose is to teach what J. Sean Mulhern (1995) once termed the "invisible curriculum." The "invisible curriculum" consists of the social/emotional, personal, and mental health aspects of student learning. The Pupil Services Department supports the engagement of students in both the regular curriculum as well as the "invisible curriculum" by hiring trained professionals in the areas of guidance and counseling, school psychology, nursing services, special education, school social work, speech and language pathology, and occupational and physical therapy. Other programs and services such as homebound instruction, developmental guidance, Chapter 220, open enrollment and summer school also help to facilitate meeting the district's goals of academic growth, shared leadership, and a diverse student-centered climate based on common goals and values.
