As the Mexican American Student Services Department Staff, we advocate for students’ academic achievement and social well-being. This is achieved by collaboratively working with TUSD schools and families by offering direct and auxiliary services, such as tutoring and mentoring.
Mexican American Student Services is a service oriented department serving Tucson Unified School District Latino students and monitoring student progress for success.
The MASSD will assist with the improvement of academic achievement of Latino students and promote cultural sensitivity through our schools and community. We provide individualized and specialized learning support, cultural awareness, and community tutoring and mentoring. Our department works with schools, exceptional education and other district departments to meet student needs. Even though the department's primary focus are Latino students, we serve all students.
Student Success Specialists placed in schools provide direct services during in-class instruction, before and after school tutoring.
