A school counselor is available for each student. Students are encouraged to talk to their counselor about their educational, vocational, or personal concerns. Information on financial assistance to colleges and universities is also available from student services. We try to encourage students to self-advocate for themselves by first speaking with their teacher regarding classroom issues. Another good way to monitor progress is through MyStudent where you can also email teachers. If you still feel after trying to communicate with your student’s teacher(s) that a parent-teacher conference is necessary, Please contact the Mrs. Gonzalez (below) to make and schedule ALL parent-teacher conferences, as well as appointments to speak with a counselor.
