Counseling Department Mission: Fostering Innate Truths

Counseling Department Vision: All are able to be their authentic selves and find support, success, value, validation, and joy in all that they do. Leaving these walls feeling prepared for the world around them in all aspects.

Hello and Welcome!

I am Chaleigh Clark, PreK-12 School Counselor and counseling department for the MLS district. I work with all students and families to foster success both personally and educationally. I  am here to help students and their families with all things social-emotional, academic, behavioral, and transitional in nature, as well as all things college and career readiness related.

 

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Idaho as well as a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling from Walden University in Minnesota.  I belong to both the American Counseling Association (ACA) and American School Counseling Association (ASCA) at both a national and state level. I have worked within school districts in a variety of capacities for over a decade and enjoy it immensely.

 

I provide weekly classroom group instruction surrounding social-emotional, academic, and career domains for all students Pk-12. Pk-6 groups occur once a week for thirty minutes and 7-12 occur once a month for the duration of a class period, roughly 45 minutes.  Individual student meetings are available for all students whenever needed and for any reason. Individual meetings can occur on a walk-in or regularly scheduled weekly or bi-weekly basis. Please note that regularly scheduled sessions will occur based on a needs evaluation, team communication,  and with a counseling permission and consent form for parents/guardians to sign for those students under 18 years of age.  Forms can be obtained under the forms section of our MLS web page or directly from the school. Forms should be returned to a student’s homeroom teacher or directly to Ms. Clark.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is an ethical term denoting a counseling practice relevant to privacy. A student who has a counseling relationship with a school counselor has the right to privacy and the promise of confidentiality. Exceptions to confidentiality exist. Information students share with the school counselor is confidential. The student’s right to privacy is guarded as much as permitted by law, ethics and school rules. The school counselor is obligated to break confidentiality when there is a potential harm to the student or others, concern of neglect or abuse, or a court of law that requires testimony or student records. The school counselor often consults with other school professionals, but only shares information necessary to achieving the goals of the consultation.

Career Planning

According to North Dakota Law NDCC 15.1-21-18.3:

“Each school district shall notify its high school students that, upon request, a student is entitled to receive a consultative review of the student’s individual high school education plan at least once during each high school grade. Upon the request of a student, the school district shall provide the consultative review.”

If students would like to review their four-year high school plan, all they need to do is schedule an appointment with me.
