  • Help parents, teachers, administrators in learning how to meet the needs of all students

Counselors help students by:

  • Promoting positive attitudes among students toward self, family, peers and community
  • Assisting students in learning how school performance relates to future opportunities
  • Developing and delivering classroom guidance lessons that teach skills such as healthy decision
  • Working collaboratively with students, parents and teachers to identify and remove barriers to learning
  • Supporting students by teaching skills for achieving success
  • Counseling with students individually and in groups
  • Providing support during personal crisis

How does a student get to see a School Counselor?

  • Self-referral
  • Request of the Counselor
  • Parent/Guardian referral
  • Principal, teacher, or other staff referral
  • Referral by friend

  Students will not be seen by the counselor for individual or group counseling without parent/legal caregiver consent. Consent can be given verbally or in writing. Generally, the counselor will send home a written permission slip. Permission can be withdrawn at any time by parent request. Services are available to all students.
