Blackman High School currently has five counselors and a graduation coach. The counselors are divided by grade level to assist students with registration, career/vocational development, the college application process, course selection advice, scholarships and financial aid, testing, and general counseling.
All counselors work with students on issues affecting their academic performance and on issues of personal and social development. The counselors are available to parents for consultation and parents are encouraged to contact any counselor with questions regarding counseling services.
All counselors have an open door policy and are available to students and parents to assist them with any concerns they may have during the school year.
Conversations with a counselor are typically confidential with the exception of situations in which the student has authorized the counselor to speak to someone else. In addition, there are a number of urgent situations which limit confidentiality:
Threat of harm to oneself
Threat of harm to another
Any report of abuse or neglect or suspected abuse or neglect
Reports of behavior which could reasonably lead to harm to self or others
Court orders requiring disclosure
Office Hours: 8:15am-3:45pm
