School Counselor's Role
The major function of a school counseling program at the elementary, middle, and high school level are to develop a comprehensive school counseling program which facilitates student development in the areas of academic, personal/social and career planning. The services we provide in these areas are designed to meet the needs of all students. School Counselors partner or collaborate with other professionals such as teachers, school social workers, school psychologists, administration, parents and community agencies to ensure we are delivering services that are in the best interest of each child. Our efforts include advocacy for services, programs and resources to meet the needs of the student population.
