    Guidance and Counseling Services:
    In accordance with the guidelines established by the National and New York State School Counseling Associations, the K-12 Guidance and Counseling program of the Manhasset School District has been designed to address the developmental needs of each student and to assist you, their parents/guardians, in helping them as they progress from their earliest days in elementary school up to the planning involved in the development of post-secondary plans. Throughout the course of this journey each student will have the opportunity to participate in individual and/or group activities designed to address their academic, social/emotional, and career needs. While the following list is not meant to be all inclusive, it will provide some insight as to the nature of the activities in which the counselors are involved.
