- Counselors throughout Omaha Public Schools work to develop student success in academic, social and college and career readiness. Counselors interact with students regularly. They provide classroom instruction and activities to develop academic and emotional skills. They also provide individual and small group counseling. These small group settings can help students resolve conflicts, practice skills and think through their actions. As students are registering for high school classes and/or preparing for the next stage of life after graduation, counselors are there to support students as they think about their hobbies, skills and future goals.
- School counselors focus on improving school connections to assist students and families in overcoming barriers that are impacting the students’ success. Every student will be empowered to gain the attitude, knowledge, and skills necessary for lifelong academic, career, and personal success. Every student will be provided a system of support to address immediate needs and concerns impacting school success. Strengths-based school counseling focuses on identifying strengths and promoting positive development.
- Students are assigned a counselor based on their grade level. Counselors may be accessed by students by filling out a request to see a counselor form. The request form may be found in their grade level Microsoft Teams application.
