Our resources for at-risk students include PST, Child Find, ELL, Gifted Education, and our Guidance Program.
The Problem Solving Team (PST) has been created to address students who may be at risk or not experiencing school success and may be in danger of school failure. Each school has its own PST and the contact person may be found by calling the school office at 664-9955.
Child Find is a statewide effort by the State Department of Education and the Department of Rehabilitation Services to locate, identify, and evaluate children with disabilities from birth to age 21. Early Intervention and Special Education Services work closely with community service agencies, parents and local school systems to locate children with disabilities.
Early Intervention and Special Education Services work closely with community service agencies, parents, and local school systems to locate children with disabilities. A toll-free number is provided for parents or other persons interested in information about referring a child from birth to age 21.
It helps the child, the family, and the provider to plan appropriate services and link families to services for students meeting eligibility requirements in the following disability areas:
Speech and Language Impairment
Specific Learning Disabilities
Traumatic Brain Injury
Other Health Impairment

The ELL (English Language Learner) program emphasizes mastery of English language skills and content area concepts for students who do not speak English as their primary language and may have limited English proficiency (LEP). This enables the student to participate effectively in the regular academic program. Contact the Phenix City Public Schools ELL Coordinator at (334) 298-0534.
The Phenix City Public School System recognizes that all students identified as gifted in our system have the right to an appropriate education that provides educational interventions which sustain, challenge and ensure continued growth. The Phenix City Public School System's gifted education program is designed to identify students who demonstrate high intellectual capacity, high academic proficiency, and /or exceptional talent in expression or leadership. This program includes specific measures designed to identify culturally diverse gifted students and ensures that no student will be excluded from either referral or participation in the gifted program because of behavior. Information about any of these programs, contact the Phenix City Public Schools Special Education Department at the Superintendent's Office at (334) 298-0534

Always send a written excuse with your child on the day they return to school. Each child is allowed 10 excused absences per year - this does not include doctor's excuse. If your child is absent more than 10 days with a written excuse or 3 days without an excuse, you and your child may be referred to the Alabama Early Warning Truancy Program as established by the court system of Alabama. It is important that your child be present at school as much as possible.
We are always happy to answer your questions. Call us at the school office or stop by and visit.
