How Deans and Academic Counselors Help...
A dean or an academic counselor works with staff, students, parents and the community to provide developmental assistance to students. They are dedicated to promoting a positive and safe school environment and improving the academic achievements of all students. Academic counselors and deans help eliminate barriers to success by facilitating access to information, resources and support services appropriate to each student's needs.
Deans and academic counselors assist students in planning, monitoring, and understanding their own educational and personal development. They play an important role in helping students explore academic options and transition from one grade level to the next.

Through a partnership with parents/guardians, staff, and community members, every student is supported and enabled to become a successful, productive citizen and lifelong learner in a diverse and ever changing world.
