The Guidance Department provides career and academic counseling. The counselors work with students, districts, faculty and families to enhance the Technical School experience. Counselors meet with students regarding:

  • Personal concerns
  • Social concerns
  • Family concerns
  • Academic concerns
  • Career related counseling
  • Students in crisis (suicide, abuse etc.)


The information disclosed to the DCTS counselors is held in strict confidentiality with several exceptions:

  • A potential danger to themselves
  • A potential danger to others
  • A potential incident of child abuse

Within these circumstances the guidance counselors are mandated reporters and will notify administration and appropriate community/law enforcement agencies or parent/guardians of the students in question.
