Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented and difficult times. The Ambridge Area School District School Counseling office will continue to work together to provide Social/Emotional, College/Career and Academic Remote Learning Opportunities for our students during the school closure as part of the District’s Continuity of Education Plan. These Remote Learning Opportunities will follow the American School Counselors Guidelines (2020) to implement an Ethical and Supportive School Counseling Program in a virtual setting. This program is set to begin on Monday, April 6, 2020 and will continue throughout the District shutdown.
As per the School Counseling team and District Plan, Counselors will be available via e-mail for any questions or concerns you or your student may have from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM Monday through Thursday. Please know, your questions and concerns are of our utmost importance, and we will work diligently to answer all your questions in a timely manner. Please allow time to ensure we are addressing all your questions in collaboration with administration and teacher personal if applicable.
In addition to providing supports via e-mail, the School Counselors will also be available for remote and virtual academic meetings via the on-line platform Zoom. If requesting to speak with a School Counselor directly via a conference call, please reach out via-email to your students School Counselor to set up a time and date for a virtual meeting to take place in order to address the needs of you and your student during the above timeframe. Please again allow for several days of planning prior to the virtual Zoom meeting to ensure collaboration of team members can take place if applicable.
In the continuity of care, we will also be sharing all information we receive from the American School Counselors Association (2020) and various educational and social/emotional resources on our School Counseling Guidance website at www.ambridge.k12.pa.us – Counseling. The website will include valuable resources on handling anxiety and stress, academic learning and college and career guides through on-line resources and videos. Individual counselors will also have separate tabs for communication for their specific grade level under this website. Please be sure to check our guidance page for uploaded videos and references, and frequently asked questions during this time of change. There will also be an open forum for High School Students via Schoology for students and parents to ask academic or college/career planning questions as a whole for which will be addressed in a timely manner.
