Welcome to Student Services

Welcome to the student services page of the Wausaukee School District web page.  The department of student services includes school counseling, school psychologist, nursing, and special education.  These are all services provided by the district to ensure all students have appropriate access to educational opportunities and to assist students and families to get the most out of their educational experiences. The goal of student services is to ensure all students receive quality educational opportunities and have the best educational experience possible. If you have any questions regarding any of the services provided in this section contact Katey Ambrose, Director of Pupil Services.


School Psychologist - School psychologists are uniquely qualified members of school teams that support students' ability to learn and teachers' ability to teach. They apply expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior, to help children and youth succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. School psychologists partner with families, teachers, school administrators, and other professionals to create safe, healthy, and supportive learning environments that strengthen connections between home, school, and the community.  (Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction)


School Counseling - Comprehensive school counseling programs are integral to the school's educational environment and partner with other academic and behavioral initiatives to effect positive changes in student achievement and behavior. Professional school counselors plan the comprehensive school counseling program and facilitate its delivery in collaboration with school administrators, other professional educators, and community members to produce measurable results. In a comprehensive program, the school counselor serves as a leader, advocate, and collaborator working to recognize and remove systemic barriers to student success. Resulting positive changes include increased student achievement, an improved graduation rate, better attendance, reduced disciplinary referrals, completed individual learning plans, and increased student participation in the community. (Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction)


School Nursing - The school nursing and health services consultant has the responsibility for providing leadership in the areas of school nursing practice, school health policy, and school health programs. Technical assistance is available on a number of topics including legal issues in school nursing, school health program planning, implementation and evaluation, education programs and related services for children with special health care needs, school health records, medication administration, and emergency services. This position also provides consultation to colleges and universities, professional organizations, and other child-serving health and education-related organizations and groups regarding pre-service preparation, continuing professional development for school health personnel, school nursing, and comprehensive school health programs.   (Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction)


Special Education - Some children who are having problems in school may need extra help through special education. Special education is for children who have a disability. Schools must follow certain procedures to decide if a child is eligible for special education. These procedures are written in state and federal laws. A child with a disability is a child who needs special education and related services. The child must be at least 3 years old, but not yet 21, and not yet graduated from high school. The term includes a person who becomes 21 during the school term for the remainder of the school term (the last day pupils attend in a school year, other than summer classes). The law has criteria for each category below to help IEP teams decide if a child has a disability.

  • Cognitive disabilities (CD)  

  • Hearing impairments (HI)

  • Speech or language impairments (SL)  

  • Visual impairments (VI)

  • Emotional behavioral disability (EBD)

  • Orthopedic impairments (OI)

  • Autism  

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)  

  • Specific learning disabilities (SLD)

  • Other health impairments (OHI)

  • Significant developmental delay (SDD)
