Role of the School Counselor/Counselor Assignments
*We Help Students Make Informed Decisions*
School counselors are professionals with training and skills to support students’ potential for healthy growth in the areas of academic, personal/social, and career development. We provide a wide range of services to all students in grades 9-12 as part of our Comprehensive School Counseling program. These services include but are not limited to: individual meetings with students, Counselor Workshop lessons, and group counseling. School Counselors also provide crisis intervention to students, attend PPT's and 504's, and consult with teachers, parents, and administrators. We are often the first person that students, parents, and teachers come to with a question or concern. Our goal is to help point them in the right direction and/or make an informed decision.
