There are full time school counselors at every school that are available to serve all students for free.

What are School Counselors:

Professional school counselors are certified/licensed educators with a minimum of a master’s degree in school counseling making them uniquely qualified to address students’ academic, social emotional and career development needs. Each elementary, middle, high school and alternative program has a full-time professional school counselor available to assist students and families. Professional school counselors design, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive school counseling program aligned with the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) that promotes success for every student.

Professional School Counselors:

  • Serve a vital role in maximizing student success
  • Promote equity and access to rigorous educational experiences for all students
  • Incorporate leadership, advocacy, collaboration, and systemic change in the educational setting
  • Support a safe learning environment and work to safeguard the human rights of all members of the school community
  • Address the needs of all students through culturally relevant prevention and intervention programs that are a part of a comprehensive school counseling program
  • Uphold the ethical and professional standards of ASCA and other applicable professional counseling associations
  • Promote the development of the school counseling program based on the following areas of the ASCA National Model: foundation, delivery, management and accountability

American School Counselor Association (ASCA)

School counselors deliver a comprehensive counseling program to all students that is aligned with the ASCA national model. The ASCA national model four themes are:

  • Leadership — leading learning and problem solving
  • Advocacy — promoting equity and access
  • Collaboration — sharing ideas and knowledge
  • Systemic Change — making improvements and enhancements
  • The framework of the ASCA national model consists of four components:
  • Foundation — focus on student and counselor skills, knowledge and outcomes
  • Management — action planning to ensure maximum use of time and resources
  • Delivery — direct and indirect services provided to students
  • Accountability — effectiveness in measurable terms

For further information on the counseling program, counseling materials, or procedures by which a parent may limit a student's participation in the counseling program, please contact the school counselor in your child's school or visit our websites.
