Student Services
"Preparing All Students to Achieve Success"

Welcome to the Office of Student Services

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.
 
School-based and Central Office staff work together to provide the guidance, support, and professional development needed for the implementation of these programs and services in the schools. In addition, staff members work collaboratively with community partners to obtain the resources needed for students and their families.

Prince William County Public Schools - Health and Physical Education
HCHY and ED OUT EXPO 2014

On May 10, 2014, Prince William County Schools - Health and Physical Education, Prince William County Healthy Communities Healthy Youth, and ED OUT, held its third annual EXPO at the Pfitzner Stadium Complex. Families enjoyed a free, fun-filled day of outdoor activities. Students were able to get the first stamp on their 2014 Explorer Passport.

Highlights of the day included the popular petting zoo, rock climbing wall, bike safety demonstrations, birdie-ball golf, archery, soccer, and Trout Unlimited fly fishing contests. The Allstate Insurance Company's "X the TXT Before You Drive" simulator taught valuable lessons about texting and driving. On Field 3 the Marine Corp played tug of war and football toss with the children. On the Showmobile Stage the public was entertained by performances from the Godwin Middle School Dance Team, Freedom High School Band, and the Hylton High School Marching Band. The high school Mascot Dance off was a huge hit. Young voices from King Elementary, Westridge Elementary, and the Creative Kids Chorale filled the air with song. Colorful dancers from Tinkus Ch'aukus and ballroom dancers from Reagan, Parkside and Stonewall Middle Schools amazed the audience. Despite intermittent rain, thousands attended the festivities to learn about the benefits of an active life and becoming connected to the community.
