Student Health & Wellness
Health Education courses at CCPS are focused on building health-literate students. Health literacy refers to the ability to obtain, interpret, and understand basic health information and services to make healthy lifestyle choices, and achieving health literacy for all students is dependent upon a comprehensive health education curriculum.
Physical Education aims to provide students with a developmentally appropriate and personally challenging program that advances the knowledge, confidence, and motivation needed to engage in a lifelong, healthy, active lifestyle.
We strive to provide an athletic program that is beneficial for all athletes, and one that gives them the opportunity to learn the skills of the game, good sportsmanship, and build strong character.
Student Support Services
School Counseling Services
School counselors support the academic, career, and social-emotional development of all students by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program that recognizes individual students, and their needs so that each student can contribute positively to their community.
Pupil Personnel Services
Pupil Personnel Workers (PPWs) serve as facilitators between families and schools. Working collaboratively, PPWs help identify, address, and alleviate issues impacting a student’s education, especially those related to attendance, residency verification, custody, and personal hardship. PPWs get to know families across the county and connect them to the resources they need to help their children be successful in school.
Please visit the Student Services page for PPW information and related services.
