Students are referred for counseling services by self, teacher or parent. Teacher referrals require completing a counseling referral form and submitting it to the counseling department. The counselor will then send a request to the teacher to visit with the student. Self-referrals only require permission for the student to leave the classroom at the time for counseling.
