The Student Support-Student Wellness Department is responsible for the facilitation of many programs and services that promote the health and well- being of the students of Ceres Unified.  This Department was created as a result of the California Department of Education's allocation of LCAP funding to Ceres Unified. Below is a list of the programs and services coordinated by this department.

The Student Support Services Department was recently recognized  by the California School Board Association (CSBA) for its comprehensive mental health program.  Ceres Unified was chosen as one of 56 recipients of the state’s leading educational honor, the Golden Bell Award.  The award recognizes public school programs that are innovative and sustainable, and for making a difference in the lives of all district students.
