Forms of Counseling Support

Individual Counseling

One-on-one counseling support is available to all students. This support is intended to address specific emotional, behavioral or social concerns that a particular child may have. It is not intended to replace current therapy interventions or serve as therapy. It is short term solution focus counseling to help students become available for learning.

Group Counseling

Small group counseling provides support for K to 8 students with similar academic, social or personal concerns.

Classroom Guidance

Classroom guidance lessons for kindergarten through fifth grade focus on a variety of issues commonly faced by elementary school-aged children, such as sharing, tattling and teasing.

School-wide Counseling

This program focuses on positive behavior intervention systems and peer mediation.
