    • Personal concerns
    • Social concerns
    • Family concerns
    • Academic concerns
    • Career related counseling
    • Students in crisis (suicide, abuse etc.)

    Confidentiality–The information disclosed to the DCTS counselors is held in strict confidentiality with several exceptions:

    Within these circumstances the guidance counselors are mandated reporters and will notify administration and appropriate community/law enforcement agencies or parent/guardians of the students in question.
