How do I Make a Referral?
School Counselors have many resources and ideas to help students to be successful in school. We want your students to succeed and are here for support in any way we can. You can email me anytime at email@example.com, or fill out one of the referral forms below to refer a student to me. I will get back to you as soon as I can. You can also call (865) 670-4104 ext. 28020 and leave a message if I am not available or email Bobbi Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teachers will refer students to see me if they are experiencing challenges in the classroom that are affecting their academic performance.
Students can also refer themselves to see the school counselor. They can tell their teacher, fill out a referral form online or talk with me directly when I am in their class for a guidance lesson.
What is Confidentiality and What Does it Mean?
Confidentiality means that information exchanged in a counseling/group session is kept private/confidential unless released by parent or student permission. Professional School Counselors are required to follow ethical and legal guidelines in maintaining confidentiality. For the safety and well being of children, limits to confidentiality include the occasional need to consult with a child's teacher or the school administrator; or the need to report to proper authorities if a student discloses that he or she is being harmed, has harmed, or is planning to do harm to him/herself or someone else.
