Ranch View Middle School Counselor's follow the ethical code and standards of American School Counselor Association (ASCA). Which means, "A school counselor, who is in a counseling relationship with a student, has an ethical and legal obligation to keep information contained within that relationship. Confidentiality is the ethical and legal term ascribed to the information communicated within the counseling relationship, and it must be maintained unless keeping that information confidential leads to foreseeable harm."(ASCA, 2018).
Student appointments can be made by filling out a pass in the Counseling Office. Parent appointments can be made by contacting their child's assigned counselor.
