Barnum School Board
United States of America

In the past Barnum High School has employed a State Licensed Guidance Counselor. During the past two years Barnum High School has used a Dean of Students (who is a certified teacher/not educated or licensed as a Guidance Counselor) to fulfill the duties of a Guidance Counselor. The Barnum High School Students deserve a Licensed Guidance Counselor.

The hiring of a Guidance Counsellor is already in the Operating Budget of the school. This change will not eliminate any jobs as the teacher acting as a "Dean of Students" is tenured and will revert back to her teaching duties (without loss of pay or grade). Barnum High School Staff and Students deserve the immediate hiring of a Licensed Guidance Counselor.

We, the undersigned, call on ISD 91 and the Barnum School Board to immediately hire a Licensed Guidance Counselor for Barnum High School. This hire will not cost anyone their job (current Dean of Students is a tenured teacher and will be able to revert to teaching without loss of pay or seniority).

This position is already budgeted for, thus will not increase the operating budget for Barnum High School. Barnum High School students and Staff deserve a Licensed Guidance Counselor!!
