Student Support Services

Detroit Lakes Public Schools provides comprehensive programs and a wide range of services for students Birth-age 22.  Student well-being is a priority and we have systems in place that will address individual student needs and provide support and resources for  families.  We will work collaboratively with all staff, students and families, to provide the best supports and services that will enable students to thrive in the Least Restrictive Environment.

The Mission of Student Support Services

The Student Support Services Department provides a framework of assistance, support, and leadership in the programs and services which support the academic, social, behavioral, and emotional development of all students as well as direct support to school sites for resources and programs as needs arise.

The Student Support Services Department works to build connections between home and school especially when parents need help in understanding their child’s education and support needs. Our greatest potential for success lies in our cooperative and collaborative efforts with our parents, students, and our school and community resources and agencies that aid us in meeting the individual needs of all students.
