Mission Statement: Our mission as Rio Norte school counselors is to provide a comprehensive guidance program that will assist all students in acquiring the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to become effective students and productive citizens.
What we do:
- We serve as an advocate for all of the students’ social, emotional and developmental needs
- We offer direct support to students through academic advising, individual and group counseling.
- We support teachers in providing a rich learning environment for all students to enable them to be successful scholars and citizens
- We work together with parents and the community to help ensure all students have the opportunities and resources they need to be lifelong learners and productive members of society
The rules of confidentiality are different from those of teachers and other school staff. Confidentiality is important to maintain a trusting relationship with students. Information is never disclosed to other staff, parents, or students unless permission to do so is granted, or if the information given is deemed crucial to a child’s safety or well being.
