Brazos River Charter School understands that sometimes students need someone to talk to that might not be in their peer group. We provide confidential counseling services to any student in need or that simply wants somebody to talk to.
The school counselor is available to assist students with a wide range of personal problems. The counselor is not there to make decisions for the students but can provide information which will help the students arrive at their own decisions.
Confidentiality: When speaking to the counselor, it is important for the students to know that the information they give the counselor in confidential. Confidential. means that the counselor will not repeat the information to anyone including parents. Confidentiality is a trust issue and is important for the student-counselor relationship.
Limits to Confidentiality : If a student informs the counselor that they plan on hurting someone or him/her self or if a student informs the counselor that he/she knows of someone that is hurting others or him/her self then by law the counselor must break confidentiality and notify the correct authorities.
