Meet Our New Pupil Services & Attendance Counselor

What does a PSA Counselor do?

PSA Counselors use a data-driven approach to attendance, to identify where prevention and early intervention are needed. They utilize a three-tiered model (prevention, early intervention, and intensive intervention) to improve individual and system-wide student attendance, engagement, achievement and graduation. 

Our counselors are child welfare and attendance advocates who work directly with students who experience difficulties in achieving their academic potential due to social/emotional, home and community barriers. PSA Counselors support students’ academic, social-emotional, and career development by improving student attendance.
