Welcome to the Seitz Middle School Counseling Department! Our goal is to advocate for every student and help them build necessary skills to navigate successfully in not only their education, but in their lives and futures. Academic guidance is provided in the selection and scheduling of classes, communicating with parents/guardians, teachers and administration, frequently to ensure a team effort is made to support our students. Responsive services are delivered to students through restorative practices, individual and small group counseling, and crisis counseling. Classroom lessons are used to build social and emotional skills, such as bullying prevention and coping skills. In addition we begin career exploration by building student’s Educational Development Plan (EDP) with Xello. Xello is engaging college and career readiness software that unlocks every student’s potential by opening their eyes to future possibilities and equipping them with the self-knowledge, skills and confidence to build actionable plans for future success.
We work hard to ensure every student leaves our building knowing our staff cares about every one of them and they have the skills needed to be successful in their future educational endeavors.
