Welcome to the Richland Parish School Board

Pupil Appraisal Services

Pupil Appraisal Services comprise an integral part of the total instructional program of the Local Educational Agency.  The purpose of Pupil Appraisal Services is to assist students who have academic, behavioral, and/or communication challenges, adjustment difficulties, or other special needs which are adversely impacting the student’s educational performance by providing services to students, parents, teachers, and other school personnel.  Pupil Appraisal personnel are not limited to providing services solely to students referred for an evaluation.  Many students experiencing academic, behavior and/or communication difficulties may be helped through recommendations made by Pupil Appraisal personnel for use in the general education classroom, enabling the student to benefit from instruction in the general education curriculum and eliminating the need for referral for an individual evaluation. Major functions of Pupil Appraisal personnel include being child/student advocates and assisting students to remain in and profit from the general education curriculum whenever possible.
