RPMS Counseling Department Data
Every year Rippon's Counseling Department conducts a school wide survey to assess the needs of our students. We tried something new this year. We created a Tiny URL and QR code so the students could use their technology in the classroom to answer the questions. We had to do a couple of additional rounds at the computer lab to make sure we provided equal access to all students who didn't have the available technology. We also found that for next year, we are going to translate the survey so that our newcomers will be able to access the survey.
So what does our data show?
What are our demographics for each grade level?

Which grade level has most of my attention currently?
Translations! Translations! Translations!
- Conferences (Parent-Teacher, Admin meetings)
- Intervention meetings
- Principal's Hearings
- Police officers
- Social workers,
- Random phone calls
A percentage of my time is also spent working in tandem with one of my counselors regarding private mental health issues that need to be discussed. The data doesn't show this, since much of my interaction is being documented by the counselors in the HUB.
Depending on the needs of the Administrators, I may also be called to help translate for disciplinary issues.
Although translating can be challenging at times, parents do feel more comfortable having someone well versed in the world of academics and emotional mental health.
