School counselors are an important part of our school family and provide valuable assistance and support to all students.
Each school has at least one full-time counselor. The counselor is usually the point of contact when a parent has a concern about special services and needs their child might have. We also partner with community mental and behavioral health agencies that provide mental health services to address social, emotional, or behavioral needs.
Our counseling program is built on three elements:
We assist students in developing an understanding of themselves, knowing the rights and needs of others, resolving conflicts, setting personal goals and reflecting on their interests, abilities and aptitudes.
We help to prepare students for life after school by exploring their personal interests and talents while providing information about careers, apprenticeships and post-secondary education.
We help students and their parents acquire knowledge of school curricular choices, plan the best program of study and seek post-secondary academic opportunities.
In addition to developing and implementing strategies to eliminate barriers to student learning and achievement, our social workers assist students with: improving interpersonal relationships, coping with crisis situations, developing problem solving skills, improving attendance, and building self-esteem and self-reliance. They strive for early intervention and are there to support positive behavioral interventions.
Linking our families to resources in our community is just one of the many ways we can help.
