CCSD School Counselors implement comprehensive school counseling programs that strive to have an impact on student growth in three intertwined and equally important areas of development: academic, career, and social/emotional.
School counselors enhance student engagement and performance by giving students the opportunity to develop academic goals reflecting their abilities and academic interests and to access appropriate rigorous, relevant coursework and experiences.
Through collaboration with stakeholders, school counselors ensure all students select a post-secondary path to productive citizenry appropriate for the student.
Using their specialized training in helping students with social/emotional issues, school counselors deliver classroom instruction, small group counseling, and individual interventions directed at improving student well-being.
