Student Support Services

The K-12 counseling program implemented in the Shorewood School District is intended to address the needs of the whole child at developmentally appropriate age levels and to build a foundation of good decision-making skills that serves the student into adulthood. The goal is to help all students learn about themselves and the world around them while making meaningful connections between the two.
