School counselors at Hainesport Township School District aid in the personal, social, and academic development of students. Our school counselors are student advocates, striving to create a learning environment where students feel socially and emotionally supported.
Hainesport Township School school counselors are members of the American School Counselor Association, New Jersey School Counselor Association, and Burlington County School Counselor Association. The school counselors collaborate with teachers, administration, and families as members of the Intervention & Referral Services (I&RS) Team and School Safety Committee. As Harassment Intimidation Bullying (HIB) Specialists, the school counselors work to identify and remediate harassment and bullying.
Our school counselors lead a wide range of activities that include: character education classroom lessons, Positive Behavior Supports in School (PBSIS), No Place for Hate activities, organizing and presenting social-emotional-academic assemblies, small group school counseling, individual school counseling, academic monitoring/counseling, high school readiness, peer conflict resolution, and peer mediation.
Any student who is having difficulty coping with a problem, either in or outside of school, may make an appointment to see his or her school counselor. Parents/Guardians who detect a problem or feel they need help in solving a problem are urged to contact their child’s school counselor.
