If you or your student would like to talk with a counselor, please complete and submit the attached COUNSELOR REQUEST FORM.
We want this to be the utmost amazing year for your child.
School counseling is considered a regular educational service and therefore students can be seen without parent consent. However, as a good faith practice, at the Mark West Union School District, the counselors will only meet with students one time without parent permission, usually to determine if counseling support is needed.
Our school counselors are happy to provide information about community resources if parents feel their student is in need of additional support but would prefer to receive it in the community.
