|The counselors are directly involved with the teachers,
administrators and school psychologist regarding academic
counseling. Counselors also meet with students by referral
from parents or teachers regarding academic difficulties.
Please call us or email us at any time if you have concerns.
||The use of classroom guidance is an efficient way to distribute
information to large groups of students. Classroom guidance lessons often include information on conflict
resolution, stress management, anger management, organization, study skills, test taking tips, career
development, orientation to middle school (6th), and orientation to high school (8th).
counselors are available to students for individual
counseling at any time. An appointment is preferred,
however, a counselor is always available in an emergency
situation. Should the need arise in a crisis situation the
Cobb County Prevention Intervention Center is notified and
an opportunity for a free assessment would be offered to
parent and student.
Voluntary groups are formed several times throughout the
school year. The focus of small group counseling is to
provide support to the student. Some of the groups offered
might be social skills, study skills, changing families,
grief and loss, and anger management. The groups, which
meet for 6-8 weeks, are scheduled at different times during
the school day so the student does not miss the same
academic class every week. Students are required to make up
missed work. Please e-mail your grade level counselor if you
are interested in learning more about the small groups
offered at McClure.
