An Introduction to Comprehensive School Counseling
The school counseling program is an integral part of the primary educational mission of the School District of Phillips, to improve and maximize learning for all students. This program supports, facilitates, and encourages classroom instruction and student achievement. Our comprehensive school program is proactive and preventative in its focus. It assists students in becoming productive workers, fair-minded citizens, and lifelong learners. More specifically, this school counseling program works to build assets in youth that will enhance academics, encourage self-awareness, foster interpersonal communication skills, provide career awareness, develop employment readiness, and impart life skills for all students.
The comprehensive school counseling program integrates academic, career, and personal/social development. The school counseling program reflects the progression of student development from pre-kindergarten through grade 12 and is delivered through the direct service program components of the guidance curriculum, individual planning, and responsive services. All program components are implemented by certified school counselors. Counseling, consultation, collaboration, coordination, case management, guidance curriculum, and program evaluation are the primary delivery methods in the program. The counseling program helps ensure equal opportunity for all students to participate fully in the educational process.
