John F. Kennedy has a wide array of services to support the academic, physical, and emotional needs of all children. These services are a vital part of our comprehensive educational program. There are times when a child may need extra attention and assistance in order to progress academically and emotionally. In such cases, all involved school personnel meet with the parents for discussion and evaluation of the child’s progress. The services described below may be available to all children or may require a formal recommendation from the GNPS Committee on Special Education (CSE).
Additionally, the School Psychologists along with the School Social Worker and School Counselor, are available to consult with teachers and meet with children when needed. Children may meet for short-term counseling, as needed, for school-related concerns. Additionally, the School Psychologists and School Social Workers are available for consultation with parents and can serve as another resource for questions you may have about your child’s development, learning, and social skills.
