Counseling Office

The Kirn Counseling Center houses the counselors, the graduation coaches, and the registrar.

Kirn counselors have a variety of roles. The primary focus is to help students be successful at Kirn. This is accomplished through communicating, consulting, collaborating, counseling, and connecting with students, families, and staff. Counselors are committed to successfully transition students to and through middle school, and on to high school.

Graduation coaches carefully monitor each student’s absences and communicate with parents regarding attendance concerns.   These Coaches are also proactive in helping to eliminate barriers to students attending school.

The Registrar wears many hats. The Registrar is responsible for new student registration, obtaining and updating student records, transfer information, school-wide mailings, coordination of the mentor program, and school apparel. She also assists parents in the development of their parent Power School account to enable easy access of their student’s assignments, attendance, and grades.
