Student Services

The District 34 Student Services department maintains a full continuum of programs and resources to provide the most beneficial support for students between the ages of three to eighth grade. We encourage parents to contact their child's teacher and/or a member of student services staff with any questions or concerns related to the services provided. 

Each building has a team of student services staff members who provide a broad range of support for students and families.

Find members of each building's student services team.
