Welcome to the Pupil Services Department

Pupil Personnel Staff

Life is an adventure; there are days when it is exciting and fun, but it can also be overwhelming and hard to understand. Sometimes there are situations in a child’s life that make it difficult to deal with the day to day expectations here at school: anger and frustration issues, changes or problems with the family system at home that affect school performance, learning difficulties, anxiety over schoolwork and testing, low self-esteem, peer conflicts, etc. 

Our goal is to provide a caring, supportive environment for your child to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally.

 The Pupil Personnel Team at Greene Central School includes school counselors and school psychologists.

What is the role of a school counselor?

The school years set the tone for developing the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for our children to become healthy, productive adults. School counselors work with the goal of assisting in the development of all students. In order to meet student needs, counselors work as a team with educators, parents, and community members to create a caring atmosphere whereby children's needs are met through prevention, early identification, and intervention. At Greene, these serves include:

Individual counseling (CSE & non-CSE students)
Group Counseling
Character Education Development
Academic, Career, and Personal/Social Development of each student

What is the role of a school psychologist?

The school psychologist uses knowledge of learning, behavior, and child development to support students and those working with students (school staff, families, counselors, medical providers, and outside service workers).
