The mission of the Student Services Department is to Engage, Encourage, and Empower all students and their families. (E3)


We engage, encourage, and empower all students by fostering a safe and equitable community built on positive relationships. Our success depends on collaborative partnerships and collective resources designed to promote excellence through the development of the whole child.

The Student Services Department supports schools to address enrollment, attendance, discipline, and social services concerns and needs.  Please contact the Student Services Department if you have questions or concerns or need assistance interpreting any Madison County School policy and/or procedure in these areas.
