Counseling Services


Core Curriculum:

A curriculum is taught through direct instruction to whole classes and small groups.  The curriculum is comprehensive in scope, preventive in nature, and developmental in design based on the needs of students.

Individual Student Planning:

Individual student planning consists of activities to help all students plan, monitor and manage their own learning in addition to the academic, social-emotional, and career readiness skills taught in core curriculum lessons.

Responsive Services:

Responsive services include activities designed to meet students' immediate needs and concerns.  Examples of responsive services are individual counseling and crisis response.



Referrals involve directing students and parents to school or community resources for additional assistance or information.


Consultation is sharing strategies with parents, teachers, other educators, and community organizations to support student achievement.


Collaboration pertains to working with other educators, parents, and the community to support students achievement and fulfill the goals of the school counseling program. Collaboration includes teaming/partnering, school committees, and parent workshops.
