Palmdale School district provides a full range of services to “at risk” and “special needs” students. The SESS Division provides direct services and support at every school site. Some students requiring more intensive support, may need to attend a campus outside their neighborhood.
SESS provides services and programs through preschool, special education, and alternative education. We support and serve students and families through a wide range of educational professionals, including: highly qualified teachers, nurses, program specialists, counselors, psychologists, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, para educators, principals, and other management and clerical support staff.
The mission of SESS is to give students and families the support and services to help them reach maximum potential. This includes early identification of needs and early intervention (Response To Intervention – RTI) – fostering positive school attendance and connectiveness to school, concern for physical, social and emotional growth, access to community agencies, cultural tolerance and understanding and parent involvement.
