ABOUT US

The School Counseling Department of Jefferson Middle School is concerned with the entire student. The philosophy of the School Counseling Department is to assist students in personal growth through the development of educational planning, self-awareness, goal setting, decision making, implementation of career plans and the evaluation of personal and career goals.

 

School counselors are student advocates who work cooperatively with other individuals and organizations to promote the development of our students. School counselors consult and collaborate with teachers, administrators and families to assist students to be successful academically, vocationally and personally.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our School Social Worker is a trained  mental health professional with a degree in social work who provides services related to a student's social, emotional and life adjustment to school and/or society.  She is the link between the home, school and community in providing direct as well as indirect services to students, families and school personnel to promote and support students' academic and social success.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Our School Psychologist provides direct support and interventions to students, consults with teachers, families, and other school-employed mental health professionals (i.e., school counselors, school social workers) to improve support strategies, work with school administrators to improve school-wide practices and policies, and collaborate with community providers to coordinate needed services. The School Psychologist is also responsible for assessing for special education needs and/or ongoing need for special education services.
