Students are usually referred to small groups by teachers. To qualify for a small group, the student’s academic success must be negatively affected by a particular issue. Most groups run for a series of six weeks and are scheduled so they do not conflict with direct instruction, usually at lunch. The Changing Families group runs every other week from October through May.
Small group counseling allows students to enjoy time with peers and realize they are not alone as they learn strategies to help them be successful.
