As we have reported, budget cuts and the surprise departure of Columbia High School Guidance Director Jennifer Giordano will mean one less guidance counselor at the high school.

CHS Principal Elizabeth Aaron addressed this in her recent letter to parents.

See that portion of the letter below:

Please know that budget cuts in SOMSD resulted in the elimination of a member of our school counseling department. As we adjust the case load of students to counselors, please know we are making every effort to make that transition smooth for counselors and students and will update you as August progresses if your child’s counselor will change. Beginning next year, all CHS students will keep their counselor for their four-year career at CHS, rather than have a 9th grade counselor and then change for grades 10-12.   We wish good luck to Dr. Giordano, departing after a decade of service at CHS leading that department, and look forward to welcoming a new supervisor in that department in August.
