mission of the W.T. Woodson High School counseling program
is to address the academic, career and personal/social development
of all students and prepare them to be responsible citizens
and life-long learners. School counselors collaborate with
other educators, parents/guardians, and the community to
ensure access and equity for all students, and to create
an environment where all students achieve, value learning,
appreciate diversity, and demonstrate responsible citizenship.
school counselors, psychologists, social workers, career
center specialist, parent liaisons and the director of student
services support the school beliefs through
student services department programs and activities. The
department offers individual and group counseling, educational
and career planning, consultation with parents and staff,
informational programs and activities, identification and
support of students with special needs, crisis intervention/problem
solving, and referrals to community agencies.
Although all counselors and student services professionals will meet with parents and students on a drop-in basis, this sometimes is not possible due to prior commitments. To ensure that your needs are met in the best fashion, an appointment is encouraged. Students
make appointments by leaving a “pink slip” (available
at the guidance suite entrance) in the counselor’s
door mailbox. Parents/guardians make appointments by calling
the counselor’s direct phone line or through email.
concerns about a specific course, such as questions about
grading or information about homework, the course teacher
should be the first
contact. For assistance with other concerns related
to school performance or the well-being of a student, consultation
with a school counselor is appropriate and encouraged.
