Counseling is available for school children primarily during school hours. In addition, parent consultations are also offered. Usually the sessions with the children run ½ hour per week or on an "as needed" basis. Counseling records are not part of the child's school file.
Parents are provided with meetings, evaluations and progress reports. Referrals for counseling may be from the teacher, principal, parish priests, the child or the parent(s). Problems addressed include poor academic performance, social problems with other children, family difficulties, and general behavioral problems.
