Role of the School Counselor
*Guidance is a service. School counselors provide a program.
*Gone are the days of school counselors sitting in their office simply handing out college applications, making schedule changes for students who want to drop a class or meeting with the troublemakers in the school. Today's school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.

Professional school counselors are
certified/licensed educators with the
minimum of a master’s degree in school
counseling and are uniquely qualified
to address the developmental needs of
all students through a comprehensive
school counseling program addressing
the academic, career and personal/social
development of all students.
It is the mission of the School Counseling Program to provide a respectful, responsible, remarkable environment that meets the needs of all children by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program that plays an active role in school climate so that each child has the opportunity to do their personal best emotionally, socially, and academically.
To prepare students to be college and career ready and meet the challenges of the 21st century by providing high quality opportunities to enable them to acquire skills, knowledge, and attitudes to become responsible citizens, productive workers, and lifelong learners.
 We believe:
• All students can learn and that the school-counseling program is an essential, integral part of the overall educational process.
• All students have dignity and worth.
• All students have the right to be served by the school-counseling program that provides education, emotional, and social support.
• The school counselor will advocate for all students, and will uphold the rights, responsibilities and obligations of every person involved, following professional school counseling ethics and standards as advocated by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA).

*80% of time is direct and indirect student services
*Advisory council- made up of students, parents, teachers, and administrators help review and make recommendations about the school counseling program
*Data, Data, Data!
Direct Student Services
Meeting school counseling standards through:
*Classroom instruction/guidance lessons
*Group activities-panned activities outside the classroom promoting
academic, career or social/emotional development
*Individual student planning

*Responsive Services
-Counseling - in individual or small-group settings school counselors
provide planned, short-term and goal-focused counseling. School
counselors do not provide therapy or long-term counseling in schools.
However, school counselors are prepared to recognize and respond
to student mental health needs and assist students and
families seeking resources.
