How does a child see the counselor?
Students may request an appointment with the counselor on their own or they may be referred by teachers or parents. Students may schedule regular counseling sessions either individually or in small groups to work on issues which may be interfering with academic performance or personal development. Individual meetings are scheduled around core instruction and at times that are least intrusive to the instructional day.
