What do School Counselors Do?

OUR MISSION:

In the South Washington County School District, the mission of professional school counselors is to provide a comprehensive developmental school counseling program focused on academic, personal, social and career development for all students, which fosters lifelong learners who are college, career and community ready.

OUR VISION:

The District 833 School Counselors believe:

  • Every student can learn
  • All students have an equal right to access a licensed school counselor and to participate in a comprehensive school counseling program designed to address academic, career, personal, and social issues.
  • All students should be provided with a school counseling program that will be consistent with expected developmental stages of learning and differences in learning styles.
  • Learning involves the education of the whole person and is a continuous lifelong process.
  • Learning requires the active participation, mutual respect and individual accountability of students, teachers, staff, parents and community members.    
  • Diversity is to be respected and appreciated as we foster unity among our students, faculty, staff and community.
  • School counselors should implement and manage data driven programs to support and implement closing-the-gap interventions and activities.
  • School counselors will annually evaluate the program through data, reflection and feedback from the school community.
  • School counselors will adhere to the American School Counselor Association ethical guidelines and standards.  

OUR GOAL:

Is that 100% of South Washington County students will graduate with the skills necessary to access their college and/or career aspirations and become lifelong learners.
