Guidance, Curriculum & Instruction
Instructor: Jeffrey Nyhuis, Assistant Principal
Guidance Counselors assist students in registering for academic programs and scheduling their classes. The counselor’s role varies depending upon a student’s year in school, type of program, and post-high school plans. However, the guidance counselors usually act as facilitators in the decision making process: explaining curriculum, interpreting course content, accounting for school policies and procedures, and assessing student interests and needs. A guidance counselor’s knowledge of students, the high school curriculum, and college and technical school requirements are used with individuals or groups of students to plan appropriate programs each semester. Scheduling for the next school year occurs in February. When academic or scheduling problems arise, guidance counselors are available to help students and parents develop solutions.
