The Student Support Services Team's role includes serving as advocate, coordinator, consultant, and liaison between school, home, and the community.  Student support staff influence school policies and work to create system change. 

The team includes the school nurse, school social worker, school counselor(s), prevention specialist, and high school drop out prevention specialist.  The school psychologist also works closely with the team.  

The goal of the Student Support Staff in the Alamance-Burlington School System is to assist our schools in helping students to have positive school experiences by reducing barriers academically, emotionally, and physically.


Our mission is to ensure that all students, regardless of race, religion, national or ethic origin, color, age, disability, socioeconomic status or gender are served equally.  We empower students and their families.
