• Hello! We are your student's school counselors this year! 

    We are so excited to be in a position to provide:

         * Academic,

         * College & Career,

         * and Social/Emotional support for your student. 

    Please feel free to contact us through our email addresses, by phone, or if you need to make a referral about a specific situation, use the Parental Referral Form; these forms are by grade level.  We look forward to working with both you and your student in order to help him or her have the best year possible!! 

    Parents/Guaridans may contact school counselors by referral forms, email, or by calling Bearden Middle (539-7839).  Students may contact their grade level school counselor through the online referral or see their teachers.


    Recently students registered for their 2021-2022 classes.  Academic data and performance records are used for placing students in the appropriate level of courses. Because these placements are believed to be the ones that will provide students with the greatest opportunity for academic success, requests for changes should seriously be weighed by the parent/guardian. However, if a parent/guardian feels that such a change needs to be considered, the academic override request must be completed.

    Submission of this form does not guarantee a class change. Request will be reviewed by the grade level counselor and the grade level administrator. The administrator will either approve the change or request a parent meeting to gather information and/or address concerns. If a parent or guardian is in need of an Academic Release Form, please click on the image below.
