Director of Guidance, Grade 9 Freshmen Academy Program & Magnet Students

I am responsible for overseeing the day-to-day operations of the guidance department. I work closely with administrators and special education services to develop and implement the best possible educational plans that will lead to the success of our students. I assist with developing the master schedule, plan new student orientation, conduct the First College program, write our quarterly newsletter, coordinate the Awards Ceremony, and work closely with at-risk students needing alternative options in their education. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of a progressive division and working at CHS, where each student is considered an individual with unlimited potential for success. You may contact me at

I work primarily with students who wish to explore and enter different career and technical fields as well as those wishing to enter the workforce upon graduation. I also coordinate PSAT, KUDER career interest inventory, and ASVAB career/military testing, provide juniors and seniors with exposure to military options and college/technical training courses, and process all summer school registrations.  I am in charge of all AC 13 program coordination in auto, welding, marine electric, hotel, early childhood, horticulture, culinary, and nursing. 

I am very excited about helping high school students reach the next phase of their lives...adulthood! I believe students can achieve anything they dream if they plan and stay focused. I am here to guide them in the direction that is best, considering their goals and values, towards a future career. I can also help them to choose courses that will give them the skills needed for their plan of action. I can be reached at Latasha.Dowe@pps.k12.va.us
