Welcome to Campbell Court's Counseling PageMr. Clif JonesSchool Counselor
Hello CCE families. Due to recent school closures, our focus has shifted to providing your child’s education virtually. As a school counselor, I am also trying to contribute in this effort as well. I will have bi-weekly guidance lessons that will be posted to my Canvas page. These are very stressful and difficult times. If any issues arise please feel free to contact me so we can work together to address your concerns. My office hours will be 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You can reach me by email at email@example.com or by telephone at (276) 629-5344.
HCPS SCHOOL COUNSELING PROGRAM GOAL
Our goal is to support, encourage, and promote the growth and development of well-rounded, productive, responsible citizens that exhibit strong character traits at school, at home, and within their community.
SCHOOL COUNSELOR RESPONSIBILITIES
Students have a scheduled time for Classroom Guidance at a minimum of once per month. Guidance classes are 30-40 minutes in duration. Lessons focus on the three main areas of content required by the VA Standards of Learning - Academic Development, Career Development, & Personal/Social Development. Students participate in a wide variety of hands-on, fun, and interactive lessons covering Character Education, Personal Hygiene, Social Skills, Career Education, Bully Prevention, and Study Skills - just to name a few!
In the event that any student should have a special need or concern, this type of counseling is available. At the elementary level, topics may involve behavior problems, social skills, grief/trauma, divorce, or any personal issue that concerns the child. Individual counseling sessions are highly confidential, and parents are notified if their child requires ongoing individual counseling services. Resources are also available for outside counseling services, if needed.
Small Group Counseling
Small groups are implemented, as necessary, to meet the needs of the student body. Counseling sessions are confidential, and students are required to sign confidentiality statements. In addition, parent permission is obtained prior to a child's participation. Topics may include self-control, anger management, grief, divorce, friendship skills, self-esteem, or other important issues.
