The Counseling & Mental Health Department provides school counseling, high school guidance, school-based mental health, and comprehensive psycho-educational assessment services. The team works with students, staff, families, and community members to offer supports and resources so that children can optimally perform in the educational and dormitory environments. As our High School students approach graduation, we facilitate transitional planning for post-secondary experiences in a college, job training, or career placement setting. Our team coordinates special events and programs related to social skills development and awareness issues. Additionally, we serve in district coaching roles for our Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS) framework, ROAR. Counseling & Mental Health staff provides training to school faculty and staff as needed on state-mandated topics and specific counseling or mental health matters.
