How do I know which counselor is mine?
You will have an assigned counselor when you enter the high school. Whether you arrive as a 9th grader, or as a transfer student during the four years, that same counselor will follow you throughout your years at Roosevelt. The Class of 2017 has Shannon Cooper; the Class of 2018 has Deb Rutzky; the class of 2019 has Aaron Carlton; and the class of 2020 has Randy Kline. These counselor assignments will not change.
Why do I have to see a specific counselor?
We find that it’s very helpful when both a student and their counselor have a long lasting relationship. Your counselor can better advise you when you are selecting courses to take at the high school, prepare career avenues for you to consider, suggest higher educational institutions for you to explore and write effective recommendations for you.
However, you should feel free to see any of the four school counselors that you feel most comfortable talking over your personal/social/educational concerns.
Do I need an appointment to see my counselor?
No, but when you do make an appointment, you are guaranteed to see your counselor at a specific time. The next best time would be before or after school or during your study halls or lunch break.
When will you be mailing next year’s schedules?
Class schedules will be handed out in May.
How do I change my schedule?
If you would like to change your schedule after school has begun, you can pick up a drop/add request form in the Guidance Office. Return the request to your counselor. They will contact you with a revised schedule or ask that you stop by to discuss the request.
If it is after the first nine weeks of school, you should make an appointment with your school counselor to discuss the course(s) in question. If a change is to be initiated, your school counselor will give you a Class Change Request Form to be completed by the teacher(s) of the courses involved, your parent/guardian and you, the student.
