School Counseling

  • Every school provides counseling services to all students. Read 324P - School Guidance and Counseling Programs.

    Members of the school counseling staff work with classroom teachers through various school and community services. Together they assist pupils with better understanding themselves, developing their abilities and intellectual capacities, making wise decisions, and preparing for and living satisfying and successful lives. All this is accomplished relative to students' abilities, interests and needs.

    In order to meet these needs, the scope of our program embraces the following services:

    • registration and orientation of students
    • maintenance of individual cumulative records
    • testing of students and interpretation of results to teachers, students and parents
    • counseling with students (career and personal)
    • provision and interpretation of educational and occupational information to students and parents
    • educational and employment placement of students
    • follow up of graduates
    • use of community agencies
    • interpreting needs of the students to the administration and those in charge of instruction
    • liaison agent for pupil, parents and school

    Course Request Letters 2023-2024

    On Wednesday, February 15, Course Request Letters for the 2023-2024 school year were emailed to parents/guardians from the Tyler System. If a student would like any changes to their course request, they can print out the letter and return it with the changes to their school counselor in the counseling office. Students may also have their parent/guardian email the course changes directly to their school counselor. Due to the migration to the new data system, Infinite Campus, the deadline for course request changes will be Friday, March 31. No changes will be accepted after this date.
