Guidance and Counseling
Parents in Partnership
We consider parents to be vital members of our team and critical to our students’ overall success. The Selvidge Guidance Department has developed a plan to increase school-wide parental involvement. Our monthly newsletter includes parenting tips and articles. The Guidance Department houses a Parent Resource Center where parents can check out books and videos. Unique to Selvidge is the Parent Ambassador Program. This program was developed by the counselors to connect parents new to the Selvidge community with current Selvidge parents to answer their questions and to provide them with information about their child’s new school. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to actively participate in their child’s middle school experience.
All students will be valued and provided results-based instruction in the areas of Career, Academic, and Personal Social Development, through a comprehensive guidance program, as they acquire skills, abilities and attitudes that empower them to be lifelong contributing members of society.
Our guidance and counseling program includes:
- CURRICULUM consists of classroom lessons and large group presentations
- INDIVIDUAL PLANNING consists of activities that help all students plan, monitor, and manage their own learning as well as their personal and career development.
- RESPONSIVE SERVICES consists of activities to meet immediate needs and concerns of students.
- SYSTEM SUPPORT consists of management activities that establish, maintain, and enhance the total guidance program.
