Corvallis School District school counselors are part of the fabric of our school communities. They build relationships of trust and help students navigate the process of change. School counselors develop caring relationships with students and can help connect students and their families to resources. Common issues in our schools include students and families seeking support to address school-based anxiety, family transitions including separation/divorce, bullying or conflict with other students, and behavior patterns that are problematic. Secondary school counselors also work with students who lack engagement in school and those who need guidance for post-secondary planning.
National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated February 3-7, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors. “We have made significant efforts in our district to support the mental health and wellness of our students,” shared Superintendent Ryan Noss. “Our school counselors play an important role in helping students navigate stress and develop social-emotional skills,” said Noss.
Thank you to all our school counselors for their efforts, hard work, and dedication to our students’ well-being!
