All Youth Achieving

can’t find something?




The mission of Pupil Services staff is to ensure that all LAUSD students are enrolled, attending, engaged, and on-track to graduate. 
Pupil Services Counselors are child welfare and attendance advocates who utilize a three-tiered model (prevention, early intervention and intensive intervention) to improve individual and system-wide student attendance, engagement, achievement and graduation. Pupil Services Counselors work directly with students who experience difficulties in achieving their academic potential due to social/emotional, home and community barriers. Pupil Services Counselors in specialized units provide additional support services that are needed by the specific populations they serve.  Organizational Chart
