Mission Of The Department

The Counselor's Role

School Counselors are specifically credentialed professionals who work in 
school settings with students, parents, educators and others within the 
community.  They design and manage comprehensive developmental guidance 
programs to help students acquire skills in the social, personal, 
educational, and career areas necessary for living in a multicultural 
society.  School Counselors accomplish this by employing such interventions 
as guiding and counseling students individual or in small groups, by 
providing information through group guidance activities, by contributing to 
the development of effective learning environments, through student advocacy 
and through consultation and collaboration with all those involved in the 
student's life.
