Learn about your child’s school and social connections from the school counselor.
When you need information or assistance, your child’s school counselor can help you get in touch with the appropriate school officials; learn about school policies on behavior, attendance, and dress; know the school calendar of important dates; and stay connected with the school in many other ways. The
school counselor can also help you locate resources in the community when you need them.
Work with the school counselor to identify resources and find solutions to problems.
If your child is having a problem at school, it is important to work with your child’s school counselor to find solutions. Discuss resources available within and outside of the school, and get information on how such programs can benefit your child. Your school counselor can be a valuable partner in your child’s education and preparation for life beyond school.
