The programs and services provided by the Office of Student Services (OSS) are within seven major areas: school counseling; school social work; school health services; student assistance programs; attendance services; positive youth development, and student support services. In addition, considerable emphasis is placed on infusing the 40 Developmental Assets® framework in all K-12 schools. The Early Identification Program (EIP) and GEAR UP programs are coordinated through this office to provide first generation college students with post-secondary educational opportunities. Prevention and intervention programs and strategies are available to build assets in students; thus enabling them to resist involvement in bullying, violence, substance abuse, cultural bias, truancy, and other harmful behaviors.

To honor and thank our military families for their strength and sacrifices, the Office of Student Services wore purple on April 15, 2015 to support Purple Up Day 2015. Operation Military Kids (OMK) chose purple because purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military as it is the combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red, and Navy blue.
