Meet our counselors

School counselors are trained professionals who work with students, teachers, administrators and parents to help children have a positive and successful school experience. Our school counselors are available to assist students who are having difficulty at school or home. 

DCS welcomed School Counselor Kristina (Gabriele) Goebel to the high school staff on Sept. 1, 2015, joining Liz Halvorsen, who joined the staff during the summer of 2014. READ MORE ABOUT THEM

 

What services do we provide?

The school counselors assist with character education, course selection, computer-assisted career and college counseling, college admissions and post-high school planning, advisement, job search information, financial aid and scholarship information.

Counseling services include the following: personal counseling for a wide range of issue facing children and teens, vocational counseling, group counseling, career counseling, college counseling and academic counseling. Peer tutoring is available for those students who are either in need of a tutor or who would like to be a peer tutor.

What is needed to register a student for school?

Students must be registered by a parent or guardian. Parents/guardians will need to provide residency documentation, birth certificate, social security card and record of immunizations to register their child. For more information, contact Joanne Boyd, ext. 243 or visit the Registration Web page
