Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What types of student concerns or issues do you address at the Student Center?

A: The concerns that the Student Center can address are typically school-based concerns that are impacting a student's ability to function adequately in school in some area(s), that may include academic stress, coping skills, or social relationships. Sometimes, a student may need more intensive services than what brief school-based counseling can provide. If this is the case, the student's parent is contacted to discuss the concerns as well as resources that are appropriate to meet the student's needs.

Q: What happens if a staff member has a concern about a student?

A: When a teacher or other staff member has a concern about a student, there are a number of potential actions that can occur.

The guidance counselor and/or administrator may gather additional information about the concern and determine whether a referral to the Student Center is appropriate. Other courses of action may include a referral to the Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) team; staff and/or parent consultation; referral to an outside support service, etc.
