    Director of Special Education/School Psychologist

    The Student Services Department includes the areas of special education and pupil services. Our Student Services Department is dedicated to an investment in the learner as a whole, and believes that strong relationships with children and families is at the heart of all that we do. We are committed to providing universal strategies and supports through social-emotional learning curriculum and prevention programs designed to provide students with the skills they need to engage socially, academically and within the greater community. We are solution-focused, creative, and strengths-based when it comes to designing programs and services to meet the unique challenges faced by students today. Our goal is to collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure that each child has what they need to be successful.

    Student services cover a wide variety of topics, some of which include: child find/screening, special education, anti-discrimination law and 504 Plans, complaint reporting and investigation, school psychological and guidance services, home-bound services, homelessness, bullying, AODA prevention, community connections/resource, and data collection/analysis.

    Kori Kopp
    School Counselor

    I would like to take a moment to introduce myself to you and your family. My name is Kori Kopp and I am your new school counselor at Wheatland Center School. (If my name sounds vaguely familiar, it is because I was a long term sub for Mrs. Ruemmele during the 2016-17 school year.) This is my 12th year working as a school counselor and I couldn’t be more excited to rejoin Wheatland Center School.

    On a more personal note: I am married to my husband Dan and we have two children, Kordan (sophomore at UW-Madison) and Kaldan (junior at Wilmot Union High School). 

    Wheatland Center School has an amazing dynamic of dedicated families, staff, and community! I look forward to meeting you and your family throughout the year. 

    School counseling is offered to all students in a variety of formats; grade-level classes, life choices classes, academic and career planning, as well as individual and group counseling sessions on a multitude of topics. In addition to counseling, I am your resource for information regarding homelessness, bullying, and AODA prevention. Please contact me for more information!
