Consult with Parents

Parents and school counselors correspond with one another to assist the child/student about varying concerns such as new school registration and transitions, special needs, family transitions, and crisis situations.  Studies have shown that children have greater academic achievement when their parents are involved in their child's education.  Parental involvement is critical component in helping a child become a successful student. Often, both parents and counselors communicate information with one another that support the needs of the student. Additionally, school counselors help parents connect with the appropriate community resources, when the need arises.
