The mission of the Roseburg High School Counseling Center is to assist all individuals in acquiring the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to be successful students, responsible citizens, productive workers, and life-long learners.
It is the philosophy of the Roseburg High School Counseling Center that all students have the ability to be successful in life. This is achieved by addressing the personal, social, behavioral, educational, and career needs of all learners, regardless of gender, race, religion or economic class. Our guidance and counseling program is vital for our students to achieve personalized, relevant learning and to develop meaningful educational plans while in school and beyond.
We believe that Guidance and Counseling:
- is developmental, sequential, and thoughtful,
- is a service coordinated with all educators and departments,
- is most effective when integrated into the curriculum and other services,
- involves the family and the broader community.
Statement of Confidentiality
At Roseburg High School, every student has the right to privacy and the right to expect the counselor-student relationship to comply with all laws and ethical standards pertaining to confidentiality in the school setting.
In our counseling offices, students are informed of the purpose, goals, and rules of counseling and are advised about the limits of confidentiality, which include the possible necessity for consulting with other professionals or making a mandatory report to law enforcement or child welfare.
