There are several ways to visit with the counselor. Here at Summit Academy Independence Jr. High, you are welcome to stop by Mrs. Kaufman's office between 8:00 and 3:30. However, she may not be in her office as she often spends time in the halls visiting with students, in the College & Career Center, and in the classrooms teaching guidance lessons. If she's not there, please email email@example.com or stop by the front office to make an appointment.
All students participate in the Comprehensive School Counseling Program through (1) School Guidance Curriculum which provides instruction in the classroom to develop the skills needed to be successful, (2) Individual Planning where students, parents, and counselor meet together to plan, monitor, and manage the student's learning activities as well as develop goals for the student's future, and (3) Responsive Services which meet the immediate concerns and needs of the students with an emphasis on prevention.
All students at Summit Academy will meet with the school counselor at least once each year.
Mrs. Kaufman is the 504 File holder at the Independence Campus for 6th-8th grades.
