Pupil Services

The Department of Pupil Services oversees certain aspects of student support services including attendance, discrimination complaints and safe and drug-free schools.

The Putnam County Board of Education believes that regular school attendance is vital to a student's academic program. Statistics indicate that classroom grades and test scores improve with good attendance. In order to realize maximum instructional benefits, students must attend school regularly and be on time to classes. Regular school attendance and punctuality develop self-discipline and responsibility.
