To educate the whole child, one must provide children with the services needed to thrive. These services do not stop at the classroom door, but are provided to these students throughout the school day and even at home. Support service providers are the individuals who are tasked with helping to ensure that full wraparound services are provided to students. These services range from Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) within the school to referrals for family financial assistance programs. Within this case study, the support service providers within a Midwestern School District were interviewed to determine how the wraparound services are provided to students and the processes taken to ensure these services are successful. This study has a unique perspective providing responses from school social workers, school psychologists, school counselors, and a dual role provider position researched at the elementary level. The findings indicate provide insight into the Midwestern Districts' support service providers' view on the program and their positions at the elementary level. The implications demonstrate successes and challenges of the support service providers' roles within this Midwestern District.
