Guidance Program

The Guidance Counselors in our school are available to help students, parents, and teachers. The program consists of a variety of services and activities which include, but are not limited to individual counseling, parent and teacher consultation, referral assistance to other programs, students scheduling, 504 coordination, and student testing. Other areas that are managed by the guidance office are:

· Magnet Applications

· Student Records/Transcripts

· Course Selection Forms

· Withdrawal Forms

· Academic Counseling

STUDENT WITHDRAWAL

Parents are asked to notify the school at least a day in advance of a student’s withdrawal so that the parent may be made aware of any damaged or lost books, materials, or any other outstanding debts. Upon completion of the withdrawal form, a transfer form will be issued. The student’s records will be forwarded to the new school upon that school’s request.

SPECIAL EDUCATION

Gifted students are those who perform at or who have demonstrated the potential to perform at high levels in academic or creative fields when compared to others of their age, experience, or environment. These students required services not ordinarily provided by the regular school program. Students possessing these abilities can be found in all populations, across all economic strata, and in all areas of human endeavor. Teachers, counselors, administrators, parents or guardians, peers, self, or any other individuals with knowledge of the student’s abilities may refer a student. Additionally, all second-grade students will be observed as potential gifted referrals using a gifted behavior checklist. For each student referred, information is gathered in the areas of Aptitude, Characteristic, and Performance. The information is entered into a matrix where points are assigned according to established criteria. The total number of points earned determines if the student qualifies for gifted services. To make a referral, contact the Gifted Specialist or Gifted Referral Screening Team Chairperson at your child’s school. If you have further questions, you may contact the Gifted Coordinator at (334)269-3808.
