News and Announcements
As February is coming to a close, the guidance center is focused on completing a Career and College Readiness (CCR) Meeting for each of our students. The CCR Meeting is the time when students select their courses for next year and receive needed information about upcoming exams and opportunities for success at West High School and beyond.
These meetings are important because West High School builds a master schedule and adjusts staffing based on student requests. Other schools decide in advance how many sections of each course they offer, and students receive their requests on a first come, first serve basis. West High seeks to create a school where students are best able to receive their requests. Because of this it is important that students get their requests in quickly so that we have a complete picture of our needs.
If you haven't yet seen your counselor, please check in with Lynette immediately to get your CCR meeting underway. We would like to begin building our master schedule for 2017-2018 on March 1st.
West High School guidance center staff would also like to extend appreciate to the many members of the Salt Lake City School District and Valley Behavioral Health Crisis Teams who have been in the building over the past few days to help our students process the tragic events of last week. We know hearts are hurting and want families to be aware that their guidance counselors are here to provide any necessary support and referrals for additional resources. Our thoughts go out to the affected families, and we want each of our students to know how important they are to us. Thank you for your concern at this time for our West High Family.
