HVRSD offers confidential professional services to assist students who are struggling with issues which negatively impact school performance. The Student Assistance Coordinator (SAC) works with students and their families to provide a combination of supportive counseling, psycho-education, assessment, and referral services.  Our "broad brush" approach addresses issues such as:


  • Self esteem
  • Suicide awareness
  • Relationship issues
  • Stress management
  • Family crisis
  • Body image
  • Mental health issues
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance use disorders
  • Drug & alcohol education



According to federal law, any information shared with the SAC is strictly confidential and cannot be shared with anyone without a Release of Information signed by the student. However, there are a few exceptions when the SAC is required to break confidentiality:

  • Risk to self, others or property
  • Suspicion of abuse or neglect of a minor
  • As allowed by court order.
