Student Services

The Student Services Department plays a central role in helping to increase communication between the school, community and the home.

Our mission is to support the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of students within the Pickens County School District. The Student Services Department consists of School Social Workers, School Counselors, School Psychologists, and Special Education Coordinators.

Our goal is to provide support for student success! We are located at 100 D. B. Carroll Street, Jasper, Georgia 30143, within the Central Office of the Board of Education.
