About Counseling Conference

After exhausting all possible on-site interventions, the school submits a Child Welfare Attendance Referral and Transition Form (CWART) requesting a Counseling Conference.

  • The student, his/her family, and a school representative meet with a Counselor or Program Administrator for Student Support Services
  • This team reviews the student’s academic and behavior successes and notes areas for improvement
  • The team collectively develops an action plan that all members contribute toward addressing the reason for referral and assisting the student’s success
  • If deemed necessary, the student can be transferred to another school by the Student Support Services Program Administrator, with agreement from the parent
  • A Child Welfare and Attendance Liaison (CWAL) is assigned to follow-up with the student and site-based student support services staff (e.g.: Counselor, Wellness Coordinator, LSP, etc.) on the action plan and to provide resources/linkages for a successful transition back to the school
