GUIDANCE curriculum works in conjunction with the Massachusetts Health Framework. Since good health is linked with better school performance, schools have a vested interest in preventing risk behaviors that have a negative impact on health. The Guidance Department is the central agency for addressing these behaviors. Children’s first and continuing teachers are parents, guardians, and families who are influential in making appropriate health decisions. Guidance helps to build a bridge of communication between families and schools to facilitate healthy decision making by students.

Services are available to all students and parents as needed.

  1. Educational, college and career planning and counseling.
  2. Scheduling and orientation of new students.
  3. Review of Student’s educational progress.
  4. Modification of student’s schedules.
  5. Information sharing and consultation with parents.
  6. Guidance Career and Information Center.
  7. Referrals to community resources.
  8. Student/teacher/parent conferences.
  9. Short term personal counseling.
  10. Referral to community mental health services.
