Parenting Classes in the Community


Parents often enlist the help of numerous outside agencies, such as therapists, tutors, educational specialists, doctors, and other professionals.  School counselors work closely with outside therapists to collaborate on best practices to help your child.  Outside tutors may often wish to contact a child's teacher directly to find out how to be most helpful.  Parents may sign a release, authorizing the school to communicate with outside professionals.  To do this, please fill out the below form with the agency/person name, contact information, and the elements of the school record we may share, and return to your child's counselor.  This release will be effective for one year and will be placed in their cumulative file. 

Authorization to Release Information

40 Developmental Assets

An important tool that counselors use when working with students is analyzing how many internal and external developmental assets they possess.  Counselors help connect youth with additional resources to help kids as they transition to the pressures that come with adolescence. Curious about the 40 Developmental Assets?  Want to know how many Developmental Assets your child has?  Click below!
