DHS Counseling Department
The mission of the Dexter High School counseling department is to provide high quality, comprehensive school counseling services to all students. Our program, as guided by the ASCA National Model, is designed to help all students develop and enhance their academic, career, and personal/social strengths in order to become responsible and productive citizens. There is a commitment to individual uniqueness and the maximum development of human potential. Through the skillful use of strategic, timely, and personal interventions, counselors customize educational experiences in order to enhance capabilities, close achievement gaps among high and low performing groups and support positive choices.

When reporting an absence or tardy for your highschooler, it is important that you call the Attendance Line. The best way to do this is to dial the Dexter High School main number, 734 424-4240, and follow the prompts. You can also enter the extension 7999 from the main district line, or any internal district phone.
Please remember that for EARLY DISMISSAL you should send a note in with your student, so that they may obtain a pass from the office. Please do not leave early dismissal messages on the Attendance Line, as this line is not continuously monitored, and may result in significant delays to your student's departure.
As always, if you have any questions regarding attendance, please call Stacey Wing at 734 424-4240, extension 7011.
