Counseling Goals

Our CHS counseling team have many goals this year. A goal that stands out among these goals to support students and staff is to focus on keeping students in class. With the pandemic and other life impacts, students have missed a lot of instruction time. It's important that we support our campus by keeping students in class for as much direct instruction as possible. Additionally, we would like to focus on increasing targeted interventions throughout the school day. All that being said, students can still access their school counselor before school, after school, or during their lunch hour. If a student is visibly upset or you feel there may be an immediate need, please send them down with a pass and let Margie know they're coming.

Counseling Data

We've been busy collecting data for the past year to directly inform our programming, and will continue to do so for the 22-23 school year. We are excited to share our progress and interventions each month as well as continue to identify gaps to improve our comprehensive counseling program.


Below is data from October 2022. Each student is asked to sign in the counseling center upon each visit as well as share the reason they're visiting. We see a shift in reasons our students are coming to counseling. With ECAP's in full force, students are coming down for academic planning and post-secondary questions.
