Rebel Round Up
What’s happening this fall in the Counseling Department at MCC High School?
This year we are forming a School Counseling Advisory Council. This will be made up of students, staff, school board, parents, and community/business representatives. We will meet three times a year: fall, winter, spring. The meetings will take place in the Counseling Center at MCC High School. The purpose of the Council is:
- To provide a platform through which we can collaborate on how to best serve our students
- To identify student and community needs
- To make recommendations regarding the school counseling department’s response to those needs
- To advocate for and support the school counseling program
Forming this council is in accordance with the American School Counselors Association “National Model for School Counseling”. If any parents or business/community members are interested in being a part of this, contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
