• Bainbridge Island School District has a counselor in all three elementary schools.  Elementary counselors perform a variety of tasks which include giving classroom guidance lessons, coordinating state testing, acting as a liaison between general education and special education, providing crisis intervention and meeting with parents.   Collaboration with the principal, parents, teachers and outside resources is important to the school counselor in that they are focusing on how a student’s social emotional growth affects their academic performance.   You can contact or make an appointment with your school counselor by calling their confidential phone line, sending an e-mail, or contacting the school’s office manager.
