Who We Are

Share This Post

With a goal of decreasing barriers to school success by providing students, school staff, and families with tools that promote academic and psychosocial growth and progress, DCPS has launched a new website dedicated to student mental health. DCPSMENTALHEALTH.ORG

The Student Supports Division ensures that schools have the resources to provide a safe and supportive learning environment where all students are able to thrive academically and socially. The division further ensures that schools have the necessary supports to address the needs of the whole child and create conditions where all students are in school every day and ready to learn.

We serve schools by providing expert consultation and services in support of the whole child. Using evidence based assessment and therapeutic practices, we intervene early, with tailored supports that match the unique needs of DCPS students.

Our goal is to decrease barriers to school success by providing students, families, and school staff with tools that promote academic and psycho social growth and progress.
