The counselor will fulfill the goals and objectives of the Developmental Counseling Program through individual counseling, small group counseling, classroom group guidance, coordination of services, and consultation with parents/guardians and teachers. The curriculum is based on the philosophy that the affective development of the student, while the responsibility of the entire school staff, is a primary concern of the counselor. The counselor helps students identify strengths, weaknesses and feelings. Students will use this heightened self-awareness in their decision-making.
The three main themes of the Developmental Guidance and Counseling Program will be reinforced throughout the curriculum by classroom teachers and specialists as the themes occur in their content area. The counselor will act as a consultant to offer guidance materials and activities to supplement their curriculum.
