Pupil Services and Attendance Counselors (PSA) are Child and Welfare advocates who serve as the liaison between school, home, and the community. They work with and on behalf of students whose home of community life presents barriers which impede educational progress. PSA counselors work directly with students who experience difficulty in educational achievement due to social/emotional adjustments and/or attendance issues. They provide direct clinical and case management services to students and parents, and provide consultation and in-service to school site personnel. PSA Counselors work to ensure equity and access for students to all available educational resources and link students to community resources in order to advance opportunities for success.
Our mission is to support and promote services to children, to service and advance the professional interest of the members, to stimulate and promote the professional growth of the individual members and to work cooperatively with other professional organizations.
