Responsive Services is a component of the Guidance and Counseling Department that addresses immediate concerns of students through prevention and intervention. Counselors collaborate with parents, staff, and the community to support Pre-K through 12th grade students.
Responsive Services counselors work specifically with students whose personal circumstances, mental health, or crises interfere with a healthy academic and personal/social development. Students may face family issues, loss, trauma, abuse, anxiety, substance abuse, self-harm, suicidal ideation, or a multitude of other issues and may benefit from counseling services.
Responsive Services counselors provide a range of services including individual counseling, small group counseling and referrals to outside agencies and support systems.
Additionally, counselors and social workers develop and implement programs, trainings and initiatives to educate and support the district and community and spread the message: You Matter.
