School Counseling

  • Every school provides counseling services to all students. Read 324P - School Guidance and Counseling Programs.

    Members of the school counseling staff work with classroom teachers through various school and community services. Together they assist pupils with better understanding themselves, developing their abilities and intellectual capacities, making wise decisions, and preparing for and living satisfying and successful lives. All this is accomplished relative to students' abilities, interests, and needs.

    In order to meet these needs, the scope of our program embraces the following services:

    • registration and orientation of students
    • maintenance of individual cumulative records
    • testing of students and interpretation of results to teachers, students, and parents
    • counseling with students (career and personal)
    • provision and interpretation of educational and occupational information to students and parents
    • educational and employment placement of students
    • follow up of graduates
    • use of community agencies
    • interpreting needs of the students to the administration and those in charge of instruction
    • liaison agent for pupil, parents, and school
