Counseling Services is made up of multiple programs, working in tandem to support Professional School Counselors K-12. Together these programs address social/emotional, academic, and career development supports which make up Comprehensive School Counseling Programs at the school level. While each program addresses a different need, they all provide consultation, resources, and support to over 250 Professional School Counselors across the District.

This includes Elementary, Middle, High School, College and Career Readiness, Crossroads/Substance Abuse, and The District Stress Management and Response Team. When our Counseling programs are their best we can ensure collaboration, purposeful interventions, and equity so that all students may develop their highest potential.
