Role of the School Counselor

  • School counseling programs support students' academic and social development. School counselors empower students to identify and address barriers that interfere with learning and the classroom environment and by assisting students with academic career and college planning.


    School counselors may provide individual or small group counseling to students on a short term basis. School counselors may refer students who have needs that go beyond the purpose of the counseling program to community resources. School counselors can assist families in finding resources in the community for additional support as needed.


    Each school personalizes the comprehensive counseling program based on the needs of the school’s student population with the objective of improving student performance and well-being. School Counselors emphasize both a standards-based and strengths-based approach. Students may seek counseling or be referred by staff or parents. All schools follow the Parental Involvement Policy (Policy 1310/4002) in regard to parental notification/permission for counseling programs.


    The counseling program is delivered in collaboration with building administrators, teachers, and other support staff involved in educating students, including those who assist students with special needs or students who are at risk.


    School counselors are expected to apply their professional training in schools in order to support student success. Through comprehensive school counseling programs of a developmental, preventive, intervention, and responsive nature, school counselors address academic development, college and career readiness and social-emotional development of students.
