Guidance & Counseling

The Guidance and Counseling Department is responsible for the coordination, implementation, and evaluation of the elementary, middle, and high school guidance programs to effectively enhance the three developmental domains for students as well as state and district initiatives. These three domains include Academic, Career, and Social-Emotional for our PK-12th grade students.

Guidance and Counseling works closely with various district departments to ensure holistic services for all students: Advanced Academics, CCMR, CTE, Family Engagement, and Student Support Services.
