- Help with grades or teachers
- Help communicating family problems to teachers
- Drug or alcohol issues
- Help dealing with stress
What does confidentiality mean?
- When you come to see us anything you talk to us about is kept confidential.
- This means that BY LAW we cannot and do not share the information you give us to anyone.
What exceptions are there to confidentiality?
We will need to share information with another under the following circumstances:
- The counselor and student agree to share the information with another person.
- The counselor is concerned that the student may cause harm to self or others.
- The student informs the counselor of abuse, neglect, or other violation of the child protection act.
When should parents contact the School Counselor?
- When you need assistance with educational planning.
- Correct academic level placement
- Honors placement
- Extra support
- If you would like to discuss issues:
- If only 1 or 2 classes are affected, please contact teachers directly.
- If 3 or more classes are affected, contact counseling.
- If you or your student need financial assistance.
- Free/reduced lunch
- school supplies
- sports fees
- partial scholarship for field trips/events
- You know of difficulties at home that may interfere with student's learning such as death, divorce, change in living situation or finances.
- You need referrals for community resources.
- child/family counseling

When should a parent contact the teacher?
Teachers work with students daily and know their individual needs so contact your child's teacher when you need information specific to their classrooms.
Often teachers have websites that may include:
- general information about classes they teach
- student progress reports
Email is an efficient and appropriate way to communicate with teachers
- List of Teachers Contact Information
- Email = email@example.com (EX. Mr. Bob Titan = firstname.lastname@example.org)
Naviance is a web-based system our district uses for college and career readiness, college applications, and the High School and Beyond plan. All students who are actively enrolled already have an account. Parents do not have accounts, but can ask their students to share what they are doing in Naviance. Here is the process for logging in:
Username: Student ID #
Password: 8 digit birthdate, no dashes or slashes
It is never too early to think about the future! As most Timbercrest students will go on to Woodinville High School, the following links will take you to pages on the WHS site:
If you are planning to attend a different high school please check with your counsellor for more information.

Personalized Pathway Requirements are courses that lead to a specific post-high school career outcome chosen by the student, based on the student’s High School & Beyond Plan. Personalized Pathway Requirements could be an extra credit of art, two credits of world language, or credits in another subject area focused in the student’s area of interest.
- 1.0 credit that meets CTE exploratory requirements or higher.
Students who earn a graduation requirement credit through a Career and Technical Education (CTE) course determined (by the Instructional Support Department) to be equivalent to a non-CTE course shall not be required to earn a second credit in the non-CTE graduation requirement course. The single CTE course would meet two diploma requirements. Similarly, students who earn a graduation requirement credit through a non-CTE course determined (by the Instructional Support Department) to be equivalent to a CTE course shall not be required to earn a second credit in the CTE graduation requirement course. However, in either case only one credit would be awarded. The student would then be required to earn an additional elective credit, as total credits for graduation will not change.
To preserve the integrity of the Northshore comprehensive high school diploma, 85% of the required credits for graduation shall be earned through the student's comprehensive high school course offerings. No more than 50% of the graduation requirements in any discipline may be obtained from approved accredited sources outside the Northshore School District. Students who earn more than 15% of the total required credits or more than 50% of the required credits in any discipline from outside sources, and who complete all district requirements for graduation, shall receive a generic Northshore School District diploma.
