School Counseling

Professionally qualified members of the school staff provide social services and counseling. The responsibilities of the school social worker, school psychologist and school counselors include helping the student function more successfully within the school environment.

Counseling is an opportunity to talk with someone about issues important to that student. These opportunities to talk may be personal, social, educational or vocational. Counselors will listen, be open, and honest with students.

Appointments can be arranged by filling out a Social Worker or School Counseling Appointment request form in the office, stopping by the Social Worker or School Counseling office before school, during Advisory period, after school, or by obtaining a pass from a teacher.

Educational and career planning counseling is available to help a child to develop a plan for his or her future. Parent/Guardian notification and involvement is encouraged.
