Child, Student, and Family Support Services

Over the past decade, the number of student support service personnel has increased by about 16%.  Some student support needs are consistent, but others are dynamic in nature, requiring continual evolution in what and how services are provided.

Why is this important?

  • Student success is influenced by a variety of factors, and not all student needs can be addressed in the classroom.
  • Support services staff provide students with additional resources needed to improve opportunities for success both in and beyond the classroom.

How are we doing?

  • The number of counselors, nurses, and speech specialists in Sacramento County decreased by 16% between the 2002-03 and 2011-12 school years.
  • For each support staff professional, there are 330 Sacramento County public school students.
  • The ratio for California overall is 255 students for each support staff professional.
