  •  Welcome to the SAC Program

    As the SAC (Student Assistance Counselor) at Grice, I provide a variety of services to students who are dealing with non-academic issues that might interfere with their ability to achieve in school. Students are better able to succeed if these issues are directly addressed. This allows us to reduce risk factors and increase positive assets so that students can more effectively learn, grow and reach their goals.

     

    To this end, some of the services provided include: 

    • Individual counseling and Assessment
    • Group counseling  
    • Crisis intervention
    • Coordination with and referral to outside agencies
    • Coordination with School Counselors and the CORE Team, Crisis Management Team, Student Support Team, School Climate Team, Intervention & Referral Services Team & Pandemic Response Team.
    • Information Resource for issues relating to substance abuse and mental health      
    • Serving as our school's Anti-Bullying Specialist

     

    Some issues addressed include:

    • Substance Abuse by the student
    • Substance Abuse by the student's family member or peer     
    • Emotional Distress
    • Bullying
    • Stress/Anxiety    
    • Death and Grief
    • Self-injurious behaviors
    • Disordered Eating behaviors
    • Peer mediation/conflict resolution
    • Bias/Discrimination     
    • Family issues/divorce
    • Healthy relationships
    • HIB Related issues HIB Frequently Asked Questions    HIB Reporting Form

     

    Referral Procedures:

    During remote/hybrid learning please email me or call me to make an appointment.

    Any student who wishes to utilize SAC services may stop by the office to make an appointment. The office is located across from the girls locker room and next to C100.

    Alternatively, you may drop a note in my SAC mailbox in the main office requesting a meeting.

    Parents, family, community members, students and teachers may also refer a student if they are concerned that an issue is affecting his or her abilities in school. I can be contacted in person, by phone or by email. 

    If you refer a student, your referral will be kept confidential.

    *Contact your SAC with any questions regarding referral procedures.
