Student Services

The Department of Student Services focuses its expertise and efforts on the safety and security of students, staff and community within the context of Albemarle County Public Schools. While this sounds like an awesome responsibility, much less task, it is not done in isolation. Quite the contrary. The Department of Student Services can only effectively operate through the cooperation of staff, parents and community to be successful in creating the conditions for the optimal learning environment for children and adults.
