The School Counselor Referral Form is a great way for school counselors to be able to refer students to the program and can help build a school's support team ability to work together.
A few of the common practices for informing students about the program include:
- Tabling at events where students and parents are present: registration, back-to-school nights, financial aid nights, parent-teacher conferences, etc., so you can talk with parents about the program and get signed permission forms completed.
- Ensure staff know about the program (through formal and informal conversations) and that they can refer students to you in order to get students on board.
- Talk with students while visiting classes and speaking at class meetings and assemblies.
- Encourage students to refer their peers to the program.
