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.
