school counseling week

Happy National School Counseling Week!

School counselors are an essential part of our district. They work to maximize student success and promote access and equity for all students.

School counselors help all students:

  • apply academic achievement strategies
  • manage emotions and apply interpersonal skills
  • plan for postsecondary options (higher education, military, work force)

Their great work includes providing:

  • individual student academic planning and goal setting
  • school counseling classroom lessons based on student success standards
  • short-term counseling to students
  • referrals for long-term support
  • collaboration with families/teachers/ administrators/community for student success
  • advocacy for students at individual education plan meetings and other student-focused meetings
  • data analysis to identify student issues, needs and challenges
  • acting as a systems change agent to improve equity and access, achievement and opportunities for all students
