    One-On-One Meetings

    (*Information to come about how these will be conducted virtually. During distance learning, they will not be 1:1 contacts.)

     Anyone may refer a student (students, school counselors, teachers, parents).

     Students may request a PEER meeting through the counselors or the PEER desktop icon.
    Counselor meets with the recommended student to see if he or she would like to meet with PEER.
    If student agrees, a meeting is arranged. 
    Meetings are held in private conference rooms in the counseling office.
