Crisis Intervention, Fights with Friends, and "My Teacher Sent Me:" Data Collection on Unscheduled Sessions
Because my district is REALLY struggling financially and I'm the newest of only four school counselors, I figured it would be wise for me to have information on hand to show how much of my job involves crisis intervention or dealing with the unscheduled and unexpected.
Before the start of the school year I made a Google Doc form for that purpose. I've been spending maybe 5-10 minutes after school entering the name and general presenting issue of whoever has shown up at my door that day. That version has been okay, but it doesn't quite capture everything I want to track.
So I created a new form to collect data on the number of unscheduled kids I see, how those kids get to me, how much time I'm spending with them, and (super important from a CYA standpoint) whether these sessions with kids in crisis are forcing to miss any of my kids on IEPs or 504s.
