Counseling

Hello from the PHS Counselors!

We are looking forward to this school year with you.  We are making a couple of changes you need to be aware of.

First, the Counselors will be dividing students by alphabet, so your Counselor may change.  Mrs. Dayley will work with students with last names starting with A - G, Mrs. Long will work with students with last names starting H - O, and Mrs. Sellman will work with students with last names starting with P - Z.

Second, schedule changes can be requested by email or text. 

We are excited to see you!

Mrs. Sellman is happy to work with all freshman students on issues such as schedules, 504 plans as well as IEPs. 

In addition, Mrs. Sellman’s hope is that students find her office to be a safe, nonjudgmental, compassionate space where they can share any fears of the future or challenges they are currently facing.  The greatest goal for Mrs. Sellman is to help students gain the skills they need to advocate for themselves while balancing the many facets of their high school career.

Schedule Changes

 

Pocatello High School’s goal is to assist students in selecting classes that will best prepare them for future endeavors. Students register for primary and alternate classes of their choice. This decision should be made carefully with input from parents, counselors and teachers. Students are strongly encouraged to select classes which will fulfill graduation requirements while preparing them for the college/career path they are contemplating. Students will be placed in the classes they registered for as space allows and if they have met all prerequisites.

We are open to adjusting student schedules/changing classes to better meet the unique needs of each student. Students wishing to make schedule changes must consult with their counselor.

 

Schedule Change Timeline:

 

  • Must occur before the end of the 3rd school day in the trimester
  • Changes after the 7 th school day will be recorded as withdraw/fail (WF) on transcript
  • Counselors available for changes 2 weeks prior to start of trimester
     

Common Reasons to Change Schedule:

 

  • Academic misplacement
  • Repeating a class by mistake
  • Missing prerequisites for the class
  • Previously failed the class with same instructor
  • Class change required to meet graduation requirements
  • Change in interest or focus

 

Schedule changes for reasons other than those listed above may require administrative approval – see counselors for more information.
