COUNSELING DEPARTMENT NEWS

Our counselors provide a variety of services to our students with their primary role being academic counseling. One of the other services is to offer guidance through various classes. Guidance topics include career exploration, bullying prevention, and information on various school activities.
 
This year, we would like to give students more opportunities to get involved in small group counseling sessions with other students that have similar needs. A needs assessment is currently being done, but some examples of groups that we may offer are study/organization skills, changes in family, stress management, grief and loss, communication skills, self-esteem/social skills and internet/social media safety. Groups will be developed based on student needs. If you have a particular concern about your child and want them to receive such services, please call or e-mail.

Credit Recovery
If a student has a failure from a semester core class, those classes must be retaken. Options include: 1. Global Academy #online# or 2. Summer School. Students that have any deficiencies by the end of 8th grade will not be able to promote to high school. Please contact your child's counselor for more information on credit recovery.
 
According to the PROMOTION REQUIREMENTS established by the Gilbert Public Schools Governing Board, “All seventh and eighth grade students enrolled in the junior high schools will be required to pass a minimum of six (6) credits a year in the required basic curriculum. Eighth grade students may be required to pass five (5) credits a year if they have achieved reading proficiency.” A student who fails a semester of credit in any required subject must pass a district-approved course to clear this deficiency
