Student Services

The mission of Student Services is to achieve the strategic vision of SAU 1 by providing direction and support to each member school in their successful implementation of best practices to meet the needs of all students and to ensure legal compliance.

In support of the ConVal School District’s mission, Student Services provides a full spectrum of services for more than 2,100 students. We provide enrollment, instructional, and school counseling services. We provide on-demand crisis prevention and crisis intervention services. We also serve as the district’s resource center for students who experience abuse or neglect and assist families who are in transition or homeless.
