PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL SERVICES
Guidance - 966-5070 ext. 453
Counselors are available to give assistance to students regarding school and personal problems. The guidance staff provides students with educational and occupational information and assists students in interpreting and recognizing their abilities, interest and needs while in school. Another role of our Counselors is to increase communication between home and school. Although regularly scheduled conferences are held throughout the school year, students are invited to visit the guidance office whenever a question or problem arises.
It is recommended that students visit the guidance office during their study hall and/or lunch periods. If it is necessary to leave an academic subject class or study hall a pass signed by the teacher in charge is required.
Counselors are readily available to assist students with:
- Personal problems
- choice of courses
- choice of future occupations
- selection of extracurricular programs
- poor school achievement.
Each student develops a four-year high school plan with his/her counselor at the end of the eighth grade. This plan is revised yearly in accordance with the student's expectations and career goals. Parents are included in this plan and any subsequent revisions.
Schedule changes or a request to drop a course made after the first two weeks of school will not be permitted. A conference with teachers, guidance counselors and principal will be required in considering any course changes.
Parents are encouraged to call Michelle Fisher, the Middle School Guidance Counselor, to discuss the educational program or emotional health of their child. Appointments can be made by calling the guidance office, at 966-5190 ext 453.
