Counseling Office

  • The Kirn Counseling Center houses the Counselors, the Graduation Coach and the Registrar.

    Kirn Counselors have a variety of roles. Their primary focus, though, is to help students be successful at Kirn. This is accomplished through communication, consultation, collaboration, counseling and connecting with students, families and staff. Counselors are committed to successfully transitioning students to and through middle school and on to high school.

    GraLynx Paw duation Coaches carefully monitor each student’s absences and communicates 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, obtaining transfer information, processing school-wide mailings, coordination of the mentor program and school apparel. She also assists parents in the development of their parent PowerSchool account to enable easy access of their student’s assignments, attendance and grades.
