Other Services


Values Awareness Education:

Classroom activities are used to make students aware of how their values help them make decisions, and that considering the values of others helps them to resolve conflicts.  Students are encouraged to share and prioritize some of their values as well as respect the opinions of others.  

 

Mental Health Referrals:

Referrals for mental health services in the area can be provided upon request by your child’s guidance counselor.  

 

Student Mediations:

A dispute between students may be resolved with the help of a guidance counselor.  As an impartial mediator, the counselor can make sure both sides are allowed to voice their concerns and are treated fairly.  Students will work to find common ground in order to coexist peacefully at school.  Students or parents may request a mediation.  

           

Bullying/Harassment Education:

At the beginning of the year, Mr. Rollins explains the district policy on bullying and harassment to seventh grade students.  Skit demonstrations and role plays are used to highlight examples of bullying behavior in a classroom environment.  An emphasis is placed on strategies to respond effectively to any aggressive behavior.    

 

504 Coordinator:

Students with disabilities that qualify for an educational plan under Section 504 of the Civil Right Act will have their services coordinated by guidance staff or the school nurse.
