School Support Staff
School support staff include a variety of staff members who provide specialized instructional support as well as support to students while they utilize school facilities.

They can foster positive, trusting relationships with students and improve school climate by encouraging parent and family involvement in education. Because students connect with school support staff on many occasions throughout the school day, support staff can model positive behavior and send positive messages to students.
