What does a School Counselor do? School Counselors identify student and school needs by analyzing data to design and deliver a Comprehensive School Counseling Program (CSCP) that improve student outcomes (e.g. achievement, student, discipline,etc).
We are certified/licensed educators with professional ethical guidelines and Master's level training that uniquely equip us to address all students' academic, career, and social/emotional development needs through the CSCP.
We partner with students, parents/guardians, teachers and staff, administrators, and other key stakeholders to maximize student success!
Family Transitions (e.g. Divorce, Death, Incarcerated, etc.)
We serve the whole child so please do not hesitate to contact your school counselors.
How does a student see the School Counselor? Instructional time is extremely important for student success; thus, a referral system is in place to protect it as well as ensure that counselors have adequate time to address the needs of students. Go to Referrals to submit referral online:
Self-referral by the student
Confidentiality Confidentiality helps to ensure trust in the counseling relationship. School counselors are ethically and legally expected to protect student confidentiality unless information is deemed to be of serious or foreseeable harm to the student or someone else. Thus, to ensure student safety and well-being, confidentiality does not apply for the following:
Student is and/or suspected of harming themselves.
Student is and/or suspected of being harmed or in danger by someone else.
Student is and/or suspected of harming someone else.
