  • What do School Counselors do? 

    School Counselors meet individually with students for a variety of reasons including friendship, anxiety, conflicts, bullying, academic difficulties, families in divorce, grief, and depression. When there is a need, we also conduct groups addressing issues such as social skills, family change, anger management, and study skills. To find out more about what groups are being offered or if you feel your child needs individual attention, contact any of the counselors listed on this page.

     

    What do School Social Workers do? 

    The SCHOOL SOCIAL WORK MISSION is to promote academic success by reducing social, emotional, economic and environmental barriers to learning.   

    School social workers offer direct and indirect services to students, families, and school personnel that promote and support students’ academic and social success.

    This includes: advocating, serving families, supporting school staff, coordinating community agency services, preparing delivering classroom presentations, developing programs, resources, and policies.
