rkw=), Slide 7 June 5, 2014 What you can expect from your counselors... CAREER/LIFE SKILLS AND POST-SECONDARY PLANNING Michigan s Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program includes the opportunity for the counselor(s) to join teachers and students in the classroom to develop Career and Life skills. Skills such as knowledge of self and others, how to develop educational/career technical skills and post-secondary planning including college, military and employment are covered through presentations, discussions and activities led by the counselors. Educational Development Plans are created and maintained. Academic Opportunities available through the Ann Arbor Public Schools are also discussed. INDIVIDUAL PERSONAL SUPPORT Counseling at Huron is not just scheduling or problems! Brief counseling intervention and ongoing support is available for students experiencing problems to help explore solutions so the student may effectively alleviate problems in areas related to family, school, personal or social issues. Suggestions for external assistance for a variety of issues are available at request. Counselors also provide information and opportunities in the career pathways. Remember, your counselor writes your college recommendations. The better we get to know you, the better service and support we can provide. Stop by just to say Hi ! FAMILY SUPPORT The counselors are available for consultation about any concerns regarding their children. Family support strengthens families by improving communication, clarifying roles and responsibilities and mediating conflicts. Counselors work to advocate for YOU, the student. Administrator works to maintain AAPS Policy & School Expectations fairly for ALL students. If you don t know where to go, who to talk to or even the exact question... Talk to us, we can help!
