The ZCHS Counseling Department welcomes each of you to the 2017-2018 school year. For our ninth grade students, the next chapter is just getting started. For our seniors, you are probably wondering how the last three years went so fast. Whether you are brand new to Zionsville Schools or this is your child's 13th year here, we want all students to feel connected to our school community. The ZCHS Counseling Department is comprised of six School Counselors assigned to students alphabetically by last name, a College & Career Transition Coordinator, a Registrar, and a School Counseling Administrative Assistant. Collectively, our focus is to work diligently alongside students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community members to provide programming in the areas related to academic development, social/emotional development, and career development.
Below are a few big picture ways in which our school counseling department will collaborate and partner with all stakeholders.
Dissemination of Relevant Information and Programs/Events: The Counseling Department will use the following ways to disseminate relevant information and programs/events that are related to academic development, social/emotional development, and career development.
· ZCHS Weekly Parent Update: Our department will disseminate relevant information through our Counselors’ Corner located in the ZCHS weekly parent update, which is sent via email each Friday.
· Direct Communication via Email: Throughout the school year, our department may send updates directly to families via email. For example, parents of seniors will receive an email this week that contains important information related to the college admission process and post-secondary planning.
· Remind 101 for each class: The College & Career Transition Coordinator offers students and families the opportunity to register and receive information specific to the student’s class. Below are class specific directions on how to join this text messaging system.
