• Student Support Services

School District No. 58's Student Support Services facilitates student development, wellness and learning by promoting an environment that allows students to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes for life long learning and fulfillment.  Schools, parents and community work collaboratively to ensure that every student is given the opportunity to fully participate in a broad, individually challenging educational program in a supportive and caring school environment.
