Counselors meet with freshmen in small groups each Fall. These small group meetings allow counselors to introduce themselves to freshmen and ensure they are experiencing a positive transition to high school. In the Spring, counselors begin to meet with freshmen during individual developmental conferences. Counselors use Naviance (the WCASD’s college and career online platform) to guide and record the conference.
9th Grade Developmental Program Freshmen: Large Group Presentations: In October, during PSAT testing, 9th grade students will attend different presentations in small groups as part of the Counseling Department’s 9th grade developmental program. Students will receive an overview of the various resources available to them, participate in postsecondary planning, and receive QPR training.
Individual Meetings: Counselors will meet individually with all freshmen during the school year. The purpose of these meetings is to introduce students to their counselor and review the students’ individual goal plan.
