Student Personnel Services Overview
Salem Student Personnel Services provide and support a variety of school- based prevention, intervention, and educationally-based services to assist all students in becoming effective learners and productive students. The mission of the Student Personnel Services Program is to collaborate with students, parents, community members, healthcare providers, and educators to develop and implement a comprehensive integrated educational program of student personnel services. This collaboration fosters the academic, social, physical health, emotional success, and general well-being of all students in a safe, respectful, and responsible school environment.
Student Personnel Services in the Salem District are provided by a number of professionals, including the School Psychologist, the Speech/Language Pathologists, the Occupational Therapist, the Physical Therapist, the School Nurse, the Guidance Counselors, the Special Education Teachers, selected Educational Consultants and Service Providers and instructional support personnel, as necessary to meet the particular needs of a student(s). The delivery of Student Personnel Services is driven by the individual needs of each student, the requirements of the Federal and State mandates (IDEA) and the availability of resources within the student's home and the Salem School District or extended school community.
