The counselors serve the educational and emotional needs of our students. The guidance counselors offer experienced support to students, teachers and parents.
The counselors also communicate with community agencies involved in student life. In their daily efforts to help students, the counselors focus on developing individuals academic, career, personal and social competencies. Each counselor has been maintaining special activities throughout the year, and each brings unique and diverse talents to the guidance program.
Individual, group and family counseling services will be provided for William P. Kimmel Alternative School dropout prevention students and their families both on-site and in collaboration with other community resources. Parent/guardian involvement will be requested from the initial referral consideration and entrance into the program. It is hoped to continue family support through ongoing use of parent/guardian evening programs, quarterly newsletters, requested phone conferences and both formal and informal meetings.
