Thornton Fractional North's High School Pupil Personnel Services Program

The goal of the delivery model is to integrate services to students in the following areas:


The school registrar is responsible for keeping accurate records for current students. The registrar will assist you in the initial enrollment process. Parents are expected to provide accurate and up-to-date information for their son or daughter. The parents must also provide Proof of Residency as required by the District 215 School Board. Alumni may request transcripts and potential employers may verify graduation with the registrar.


The basic philosophy of the guidance department is predicated on each student being assisted in his/her area of need, in order for that student to reach his/her potential. The guidance program is designed to help students throughout high school in the areas of goal setting, planning, self-awareness, career exploration and decision-making. The guidance counselor has two primary functions; to encourage and assist students in planning educational programs in keeping with student skills, motivation and interests and to help students with post-high school planning.

Support/Social Work Services

As an integral part of the pupil personnel services team, the school social workers operate to provide an auxiliary service to education. A basic objective is to make it possible for a student to realize his/her learning potential. The social workers' efforts are directed towards the improvement of the individual's academic functioning. The initial referral for service may come from various sources; administrators, teachers, counselors, psychologist, nurse, parents, and students. The social workers assess school related problems and their possible causes. Recommendations are made which may include programming modifications, referrals to appropriate community resources, and/or school social work services.

Special Education Program

District 215 offers a full continuum of special education programs and related services for students with identified needs. These services are provided in the least restrictive environment and in a variety of settings to meet the individual needs of the student.

Health Services

A full-time registered nurse is available in the building during the school day. The school nurse provides medical attention to students and staff.
