 Welcome to the ECHS Counselor Website!  

Students:  You will be able to access your 16/17 schedule via Student Portal and Parent Portal on Thursday, July 28th at 6:00 pm.  If you do not have a portal account, please see Ms. Kay Powell at kpowell@effingham.k12.ga.us and she will help you set up an account. 

Drop/Add Requests:  As a reminder, requested schedule changes will be honored for true errors; for example, when a required class for graduation is not on the student’s schedule, when a student has already received credit for a class on the schedule, etc.   Approved reasons for schedule changes are on the Drop/Add form.   Counselors cannot change schedules to accommodate specific teacher or specific class period requests.  To ensure counselors have time to review each drop/add request, students may only submit one drop/add form during the drop/add time frame.  The last day to submit a drop/add form will be Friday, August 5th at 4:00 pm.  No drop/add requests will be fulfilled without a drop/add form.  Drop/Add forms will be available through the Parent and Student Portals.  In addition, you can pick one up in the counselor's office or Click Here for Drop/Add FormRequests will not be accepted after August 5th at 4:00 pm.
Override Forms:  Override forms are used when the student is requesting a course for which he/she was not recommended.  Parent signatures are required.  Complete this form with great caution.  With the signature and submission of this form, the student and parent are accepting all responsibility for the pass or failure of the course.  Once enrolled in the requested course, the student will not be removed--even if he or she begins to struggle immediately.  Override forms can be picked up in the counselor's office or Click Here for Override Form.  Submit completed forms to the counselor's office on or before August 5, 2016 at 4:00 pm.  Requests will not be accepted after August 5th at 4:00pm.
