Wraparound Services
The Gainesville City School System believes that children are most successful when the needs of the whole child are met. Students who need interventions, whether those deal with basic needs, physical or emotional health, or family supports, will learn best when those needs are addressed. As such, the school district has a variety of services available to help students and families.

Counseling and Social Work
All schools have a minimum of one full-time counselor on staff. School social workers are also available to support needs beyond those that can be served through counselors or would be more appropriate handled through social work resources. School social workers are well-acquainted with the resources available in the school and community and work to remove barriers to learning by supporting students and families.

Outside Counseling Services
Counseling is provided by many outside providers in our community, but we are fortunate to have several unique opportunities available to our students. Center Point works with the school system to provide interns and can sometimes provide services at no cost to students who meet certain criteria. Each school counselor manages students referred to this program. Family Ties (GMS) and APEX (GMS and GHS) counselors are available to meet with identified students on campus.

Food Pantries
Families that need support with basic needs such as food items or basic hygiene supplies may be served through the referral of counselors and/or social workers.
