The Guidance Department at West Side High School seeks to meet the diverse needs of the student body.  Counselors work closely with the entire school staff, other supportive services, parents and the community to assist each student in making good personal and social adjustments, wise educational and career choices and sound long range plans.

    Guidance Protocols:

  1.  Staff members are not permitted to send students with or without passes to the Guidance Office; except in the case of emergencies.
  2. Students have plenty of questions and anxiety throughout the year so we intend on addressing each and every concern and/or question they may have; however, we will be conducting conferences in a professional manner and adhering to a schedule.
  3. In the event a student must immediately speak to his/her counselor we ask Block 1 Teacher Advisors to send an email notify either Ms.  D. Holt or Ms. S. Hall & they will in turn make appointments.   At this moment schedules are a prime concern so a form has been attached to this email for students questioning/ wish to make changes to their schedule.  Please provide the form for any of your students making such inquiries.

All our students are important to us and the best way of servicing all of them is via a system, which will be successful ONLY with everyone’s cooperation!
