Department of Student Support Services


Welcome to the Department and Office of Student Support Services. Through a process of systemic synergy, our explicit 2015-2016 Student Support Services Department  goal is to create a districtwide climate that optimizes, maximizes, and increases student access to high quality teaching and learning. To that end we strive to ensure educational success and transformation for all students. Through the support of this department, we endeavor to provide the necessary intervention systems, aiding students and families in maximizing their educational experience within the San Lorenzo Unified School District. Our staff is dedicated to providing the best level of quality service through the lens of equity, integrity, respect, and social justice. In mission, we strive to partner with all district and site-based departments to close academic, opportunity, racial, and discipline gaps, preparing students for solid futures. For the 2015-2016 school year we will continually deepen our District and Departmental implementation of Restorative Practices, as coordinated by Amani Dunham. For detailed information about our RJ approach, please visit our Restorative Practices page.

In Student Support Services we manage issues from the district level that are related to truancy (SART/SARB/Chronic Absenteeism), residence verifications (home visits), Section-504 Plans, the DICE Program, Inter District Transfer Applications, School Choice placements, Open Enrollment, transcript requests, summer work permits, student enrollment, expulsions, the Re-Entry Program, McKinney-Vento Homeless Program, The Parent Project, SLZUSD Mental Health Collaborative, Foster Youth services, matters related to discipline, the process/implementation of Restorative Practices and more.

For deeper information and our departmental Theory of Action, you can view our 2015-2016 Student Support Services Department Manual & Strategic Approach.

For additional guiding information regarding parent-to-school engagement, see the US Department of Education document (English/Spanish).
