Guidance Brochure

     One of the responsibilities of the Elementary School Guidance Counselor is to conduct individual counseling sessions with children. Referrals come from parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, and children. Some of the reasons students are counseled are because of problems they may be experiencing due to separation or divorce, the death of a loved one, not getting along with classmates, not wanting to attend school, and having difficulty with school work.​

     Another important role is to be available to students, parents, teachers, and non-teaching staff to deal with issues that arise on a day-to-day basis. 

     The Elementary guidance counselor maintains various responsibilities, activities, and tasks associated with the effective operation of the guidance office, such as the following:

  • Schedule and attend parent-teacher conferences.

  • Attend IEP/ER meetings.

  • Attend meetings for 504 plans.

  • Brownsville Area Support Team (BEST)

  • Meet with parents, teachers, and administrators.

  • Coordinate testing and administer tests.

  • Create behavior reports.

  • Work with community agencies.

  • Intervene in crisis situations.

  • Truancy
