At Green Woods Charter School, our school counselors strive to enhance the well being of students by facilitating their academic, interpersonal, and emotional development. Our school counselors provide a range of services including whole class lessons, small group counseling, individual counseling, consultation with school staff and parents, as well as crisis intervention. In addition to these services, our counselors also oversee the high school application process, co-facilitate the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program and Student Leadership Team, case manage 504 Service Agreements, and support students in the RTI Process for behavior.
To provide integrated student support services, our school counselors will sometimes collaborate with outside mental health providers to provide and receive information about a student. In those cases, the school counselor will obtain parental consent using the following form: Release of Information
504 Service Agreements
In addition to counseling services, our school counselors are responsible for managing and developing student 504 Service Agreements. Some school age children with disabilities (who do not meet special education eligibility requirements) may be eligible for special protections, adaptations, and accommodations under a 504 Service Agreement. 504 plans ensure that a protected student has equal access to their learning environment. If you suspect that your child may qualify as a protected student with a disability, please contact the school counselor.
