1.6 Million Students Go to Schools That Employ Cops But No Counselors

http://theinfluence.org/1-6-million-students-go-to-schools-that-employ-cops-but-no-guidance-counselors/

 High school counselors are charged with helping students work through academic or emotional problems. They might be the first line of defense if a student is struggling with depression, anxiety, abuse or other trauma—all factors that might lead to or exacerbate problematic use of drugs. Counselors are also supposed to guide the college application process, helping kids figure out how to get in, pay for school—or whether college is right for them and what kind of continuing education best fits their needs.

Learn more than your tech staff’s names. Understand what each individual does for your school. Just because someone is in the technology department does not mean he knows everything about technology. You wouldn’t think of asking the head of the English department for help with physics. Nor should you ask a network administrator about software loaded on a student’s computer. Different areas of technology demand different skills set and levels of expertise.
