Student Support Provider Programs
Student Service Provider Framework
Many professionals within a school help to support students’ social and emotional wellbeing, mental health, and success at all tiers. This includes school counselors, general education-funded school psychologists, school social workers, school nurses, other specialized instructional support personnel, and community partners.
The PPS Successful Schools' Student Service Provider Framework is a resource to guide PPS building administrators and student service providers in thinking about the skills and competency that different groups of general education funded student support staff bring to school communities to assist in organizing teams to effectively deliver service across tiers.
