The role of school counselors is to deliver a program that nurtures development in Academic, College & Career, and Social-Emotional Domains. To continue this under the current, extraordinary circumstances, we have assembled resources categorized under these very domains. Visit our new menu for Resources During COVID-19 for more! We will also update these pages periodically as more resources/tools come to our attention. We also plan to add a page under this new menu to offer activity suggestions by grade level.

This might be a good time to ask: Did you know that Exceptional Student Services (ESS; also known as special education) does not have to stop in high school? In earlier levels of education, ESS is often initiated by educators or parents who notice students who may have special needs that impact their education. After high school, a student can still arrange for such accommodations. If you have received ESS accommodations in grade school and/or high school and are interested in securing accommodations in college, you must reach out to your college's disability services department. The approval process does not automatically begin for you just because you had an IEP or 504 Plan in high school. The exact name of the department providing disability services may vary from college to college, but it's usually a title like disability services, student success services, etc.
