What types of services are provided?

Guidance Curriculum- Our district will be implementing the Second Step curriculum for elementary to teach our children social and academic skills. This character education will focus on the following topics throughout the year:

  • Skills for Learning
  • Empathy
  • Emotion Management
  • Problem Solving

Providing guidance content to our students helps them build skills needed in everyday life to be successful socially and academically.

 

Responsive Services- As a school counselor I can assist students when an immediate issue arises. Issues can be school-related such as:

  • Tardiness
  • Absences
  • Noncompliance issues
  • Disruptive Behavior that may have underlying causes
  • Problems about grief/loss, family issues, stress, and/or bullying.

 

Individual Planning- I can meet with a student individually to monitor his/her own progress and set goals.

 

System Support-   A school counselor works with parents/guardians, teachers/school staff, community members, and other individuals in a collaborative manner to provide quality services to our students.
