Personal Learning Plans (PLPs)

We look forward to working with you this year! Our counselors have an open-door policy and emphasize comprehensive counseling services. This means that any student may meet with his or her counselor regardless of the nature of the concern or question including but not limited to academic, social, and emotional issues. Students may request an appointment through the sign-in computer at the Attendance Desk. Counselors make every attempt to meet with students within 1-3 days of a request or as soon as possible if the student indicates that he or she is in crisis. Parents and guardians are highly encouraged to contact the counselor with concerns and questions and/or to make an appointment by phone or email.

In addition to individual support, the Counseling Department at Half Moon Bay High School has developed and continues to improve the PLP or Personal Learning Plan Program to ensure that all students receive academically focused counseling services specific to their needs at each grade level.
