1. Students can refer themselves to meet with the school counselor by filling out a self-referral slip from their teacher or using forms located outside either counseling office.
2. Parents can refer their child by calling, e-mailing, or filling out a parent/teacher referral form online or outside the counseling office. You can access referral forms on this website under the individual counseling link. Parents may schedule a conference with the school counselor or coordinate a phone conference to discuss questions and concerns.
3. Teachers and administration can refer students by contacting the counselor and filling out a referral form. If your child’s classroom teacher feels as though he/she needs to see the school counselor, I will ask that they contact you. However, if your child makes a self-referral, the counselor will probably not need to contact you unless there is a particular issue that is recurring or affects the child’s safety and well-being. In these cases, I will certainly contact you.
School counselors are not required by law to keep detailed case notes on students. Therefore, we are usually not able to testify in court cases involving custody/divorce.
