Counselor's Corner Quarterly

Second Quarter Recap 2015-16

We're Meeting Our Goals -- and EXCEEDING Them!

Our Student Services team works diligently to target current and potential barriers to student success. We use a variety of tools, including small groups, individual conferencing, peer mediation, advisory groups, and mini challenges. This quarter, Mrs. Ferrell facilitated a group that targeted attendance, behavior, school involvement, self-esteem, and goal-setting. Here is a sampling of the data gathered from pre- and post-assessments and other sources:

100% Attendance Improvement

100% Involvement in a School-Wide Project

71.4% Improvement in Overall Understanding of Group Topics

75% Decrease in Major Incidents/Discipline

We know our students' growth involved a number of factors in addition to group, many of which revolved around getting connected with adult mentors within the school building and getting access to key resources. We are so proud of our students!
