  • academic planning and educational progress
  • concerns that interfere with learning
  • acquiring skills and knowledge to cope with pressures
  • interpreting test results
  • getting connected with school programs and community opportunities
  • planning for postsecondary education and career options

School counselors are trained to:

  • work with parents, students and school staff members
  • work with students individually and in groups to help resolve problems that interfere with learning
  • provide large group instruction using counseling curriculum that supports the educational and personal development of all students 
  • support students with special needs and may serve as a member of child study team
  • offer critical incident intervention, prevention and response services
  • maintain contact with and make appropriate referrals to community and social agencies
  • provide information about school and community resources
  • plan and coordinate schoolwide programs for students and parents in academic achievement, personal/social development, career development and transition planning
