Meet your Counselor
The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) identifies four major components of a successful School Counseling program. They are Guidance Curriculum, Individual Student Planning, Responsive Services, and System Support. Some examples of services I provide in each of those areas are listed below.
Confidentiality is an ethical term denoting a counseling practice relevant to privacy. A student who has a counseling relationship with a school counselor has the right to privacy and the promise of confidentiality. Exceptions to confidentiality exist. Information students share with the school counselor is confidential. The student’s right to privacy is guarded as much as permitted by law, ethics and school rules. The school counselor is obligated to break confidentiality when there is a potential harm to the student or others, concern of neglect or abuse, or a court of law that requires testimony or student records. The school counselor often consults with other school professionals, but only shares information necessary to achieving the goals of the consultation.
According to North Dakota Law NDCC 15.1-21-18.3:
"Each school district shall notify its high school students that, upon request, a student is entitled to receive a consultative review of the student's individual high school education plan at least once during each high school grade. Upon the request of a student, the school district shall provide the consultative review."
If students would like to review their four-year high school plan, all they need to do is schedule an appointment with me. They can also view their plan anytime through RUReady.nd.gov.
