Counseling

The comprehensive school counseling program is integral to a school district’s total educational program. It is developmental by design and includes sequential activities organized and implemented by school counselors with the active support of parents/guardians,  teachers,  administrators, and the community. As a developmental program, it addresses the needs of all students by facilitating their social/emotional, academic, and career development, helping create positive and safe learning climates in schools, and helping students feel connected to school and at least one caring adult. At the same time, the program assists students as they face issues and resolve problems that prevent their healthy development. The school counseling program aims to provide kindergarten through grade 12 students with successful educational experiences.
