• Welcome to the Department of Intervention and Prevention!

    Our staff is committed to assuring the high quality services are provided to every child.

    The Intervention and Prevention Programs provide many different types of early intervention services to infants, preschool and school age children. It is our goal to provide quality, research-based support services to children, families, and the Local School Education Agencies in order to assist students in mastering the core educational standards., graduating with a diploma, and to assure career and college readiness. We believe that everyone can achieve at their optimum performance if systems of support are implemented with fidelity.

    "Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better that you found it."

    --Marion Wright Edelman
