Guidance

Department Responsibilities


The Rhode Island School Counselors Association has adopted the American School Counselor standards. Nowadays, this means that in addition to what counselors normally do in the way of crisis intervention or general personal contact with students and parents in the way of academic, career or social concerns, the guidance department offers information on these topics to the entire school population as well through school wide initiatives, various classes or directly through guidance presentations or services.

Parent Expectations / Yearly Caseloads


As a parent you can expect that your student will be offered academic, career and/or personal/social information and programming through the scheduling and programming format we have designed. Please view our page on this format.
