Student Support Services


Staff at Central Middle School partner together to provide support for your child. Each student is assigned to a counselor and Administrative Dean. These roles, in coordination with our Administrators, MTSS Coordinators, Social Workers, and School Psychologists, convene regularly to review student academic performance, attendance, and behavior-related concerns.

Administrative Deans

Administrative Deans assist students in achieving academic success by promoting positive behavior and support students and families with questions regarding student conduct. 


Counselors provide assistance to support students' personal, social, career, and academic development. Students are assigned to a counselor based on their last name. Students can schedule an appointment with their counselor using an electronic form or by calling 952-975-7336. 

Social Workers

Our Social Workers assists students with emotional well-being and academic achievements and provides support in addressing a wide range of challenges. Social Workers facilitate the connection of families to valuable community resources, ensuring comprehensive support, and assistance in economic difficulties.
