Student Services
 
The mission of District 228 student services is to promote students' success in the learning process and to guide and encourage adolescents to set and achieve academic, personal, and career goals as part of a process that will enable them to live a productive, fulfilling life in which they make positive contributions to a diverse society.  The student services staff is committed to providing services that enable students to develop skills to achieve school and life success.  We value the uniqueness of all young adults and believe that all students can succeed.  As professionals, we feel it is our responsibility to provide an environment that fosters these beliefs.  The goals of student services are to support student academic achievement, career development, and social/ emotional development.
