School District

School Counseling Services

The Deer Lakes School Counseling Services Department, formerly known as Guidance, offers a variety of support services for our students.

Dedicated counselors work with students, families and staff to assist in the academic planning, college and career development and personal/social growth for each student. Our goal is to provide assistance, encouragement and support for students as they develop and prepare for their future. The resources offered through this site will assist students and their parents in gathering information on topics such as colleges, careers, scholarships, financial aid, and academic assistance.

There is also a quick link to crisis contact numbers in the case of an emergency.
 
Each Deer Lakes student is assigned a guidance counselor from the day they walk through our doors until they leave. At the high school level, one counselor is assigned to students entering their freshmen and sophomore years, while another counselor helps students entering their junior and senior years.  There are also dedicated school counselors at each of our other three buildings, helping students in Kindergarten through eighth grade.

Parents may contact counselors for information or to arrange an appointment. Your student's school counselor contact information is listed in the adjacent margin.
