What does a school counselor do?
A school counselor is a certified professional educator who advocates for students and assists parents, teachers, administrators, and their school/district community. We provide a multitude of services related to a child's academic, social, and personal development.
We help implement education reform programs, the Program of Studies, the school's Consolidated Improvement Plan and all required state and/or district assessments. We assist with faculty training and parent education. We are responsible for the identification, assessment, and reassessment of children with a variety of special needs. We monitor student's progress and provide needed assistance to remove barriers to education or refer students and families to other individuals or agencies for the appropriate help. We coordinate enrollment, scheduling, and grade reporting and facilitate parent/teacher conferences
