Participation in groups may be by self-referral, by parents, or by teacher referral. Sign up slips are distributed through classes or students may come by and give their name to a secretary or their counselor. All sessions are confidential.

COLLEGE/SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS AND TRANSCRIPTS
Students must complete a “Transcript Request Form” available in the counseling office. The counseling secretary, Mrs. Fondren, will print and place the official transcript in a sealed envelope. Each student will then pick up their official transcript and will be responsible for mailing it with their application. The same process is followed for a scholarship requiring a transcript. The first transcript is free and each after that will cost $1.00 for current students. The fee is $2.00 for graduates/withdrawn students. Payment is required at the time the transcript is picked up. All requests must be made through the use of the request form. This change in policy enables the student and parent to know exactly when the transcript is mailed. There is a required 48-hour notice. The counseling office will still mail out the final transcripts for all graduating seniors.
Students who need a copy of their shot records may request them from the counseling office using the form provided. The fee is $1.00 for current students and $2.00 for graduates/withdrawn students.
WORK PERMITS AND GOOD STUDENT INSURANCE FORMS
