Scheduling an Appointment with Your School Counselor

Counselors are able to meet with students in person or virtually through Google Meet.

  1. When you look at your counselor’s calendar, “Busy” will indicate when he/she is already scheduled for an appointment. You may schedule an appointment during the school day anywhere that is not indicated as “Busy.”
  2. When you select a time, a pop-up box will appear to create an event.
    1. First, in the title section, add your first and last name.
    2. Then, adjust the time. (We recommend 15 minute increments.)
    3. If you would like to add a description of what you would like to discuss, you can do that as well.
    4. Then, select “More Options” and under “Add Guests,” type in your counselor’s name. Select the box that says, “Guests can: Modify Event."
    5. To meet virtually with your counselor, click the button that says "Add Google Meet video conferencing."
    6. Click "Save."
    7. A popup will appear stating, “Would you like to send invitations to guests?” Select “Send.”

Your meeting will be added to your calendar and your school counselor’s calendar. Your counselor can either accept the meeting request or deny it if he/she has another obligation at that time. If you need to see your counselor on the same day you are scheduling the appointment, see the guidance secretary to schedule it.
