IN CRISIS DURING SCHOOL? Come in to the office and tell our secretary (Ms. Poellinger) - she will make sure you are seen immediately.

*Because of COVID-19, we are not using the Chill Space and students can not come into the office in groups. 

*Once the chaos of the first few weeks have passed and we have made sure that everyone has found their “schedule home” we plan to shift our focus to college and career readiness and mental health support. 

*Let’s keep each other safe and MASK UP. 


*This too shall pass . . . and when it does, we hope our office will once again be crazy, loud, and packed with students.

OUR PURPOSE 
asca


The Guidance and Counseling Program of District #200 provides developmental as well as pro-active, preventative and remedial services. The program is a cooperative effort involving students, staff members, parents and the community. Its purpose is to empower all learners to lead satisfying and productive lives by assisting them in identifying and achieving educational, career, personal and social goals. We are here to help by working with academic issues, educational and career planning as well as personal concerns.



THE ROLE OF THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR

sc


School counselors are actively committed to helping students explore their abilities, strengths, interests and talents as these traits relate to career awareness and development.

School counselors help parents focus on ways to further the education, personal and social growth of students.

School counselors work with teachers and other educators to help students explore their potential and set realistic goals for themselves.

School counselors seek to identify and utilize community resources that can enhance and compliment comprehensive school counseling programs and help students become productive members of society.

Comprehensive school counseling programs are considered an integral part of the educational process that enables all students to achieve success in school.
