BCHS Handbook for Students and Parents
Counseling services are available to help students with the problems of everyday school life and information concerning educational programs, college admission and future occupational opportunities. The primary goal is to assist students in the development of their abilities, interests and aptitudes. Counselors are available on a daily basis. Whenever possible, students should schedule an appointment to meet with their counselor during lunch or an unscheduled period. College transcripts or health forms will be processed at no charge for BCHS students. BCHS grads will be charged a two-dollar fee for completion of paperwork.
At the high school level, parent-teacher meetings are not held routinely. If a student is experiencing serious academic issues, medical issues or family concerns, a school counselor may coordinate a meeting.
Parents are encouraged to call or e-mail the school counselor or teachers when they have questions about their child’s program or progress. Teachers may contact parents when they have concerns about a student’s conduct or academic performance. To speak to a teacher, parents can call the High School during school hours and leave a voicemail message. Parents may opt to include an e-mail address as well as home, work, and cell phone numbers.
We encourage parent communication and value parental involvement. It is important for parents to share concerns, health issues, changes in the family or anything that can impact a student’s academic progress.
