The mission of the Office of Counseling Services is to provide leadership to schools through quality professional learning opportunities and technical assistance to support the implementation of a comprehensive counseling program based on the American School Counselor Association's model.
To demonstrate the effectiveness of the school-counseling program in measurable terms, professional school counselors report on immediate, intermediate, and long-range results showing how students demonstrate progress and positive change as a result of the school counseling programs. Professional school counselors use data to show the impact of the school counseling programs on school improvement and student achievement addressing areas such as, but not limited to, academic skills, literacy, attendance and completion/graduation requirements. Professional school counselors conduct school counseling program audits to guide future action and improve future results for all students.
