Welcome to DFS PPS. "What is PPS?" you may ask.  We are Pupil Personnel Services and include: Special Education teachers, a Speech Language Pathologist, a School Psychologist, a School Social Worker, an Occupational Therapist, and a Physical Therapist.  You may meet some or all of us if your child is referred for Early Intervention or Special Education.

A district-wide initiative which falls under the Pupil Services and Personnel heading is “Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS)”. Please click here to see the matrix which pertains to this year round method of positively supporting our students and staff.
