Counseling Survey
The New Castle Counseling department is applying for the Lilly Endowment's Comprehensive Counseling Initiative for Indiana K-12 students grant program.  The aim of the Counseling Initiative is to increase significantly the number of K - 12 students in Indiana who are emotionally healthy, realize academic success, and are career ready to compete and prosper in the global society in which they will live and work.  
As a part of our grant application we need to survey staff, parents and students to identify areas of need.  Please complete this survey by March 31, 2017.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated as we work to secure funds to enhance our current K - 12 counseling program.
We will be working with school administrators to have this completed with the students.
