The Student Health and Human Services (SHHS) Division provides a comprehensive array of services that support student achievement and success in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The main goal of SHHS is to support a safe, caring, nurturing environment where children thrive and leave school, college and career ready. Directors within the Division identified the many ways in which SHHS services align with the LAUSD goals, as measured by the performance meter.
