How School Counselors Help Students

    • Encourage positive attitudes among students toward self, family, peers and community

    • Counsel students, individually and in groups, to encourage understanding and appreciation for their unique attributes and qualities

    • Promote personal and social growth

    • Support students in developing an individual plan for academic success.

    • Develop and deliver classroom lessons that teach skills related to character education development, anti-bullying behaviors, techniques for making healthy decisions, and methods for resolving conflicts

    • Challenge students to become invested in their school success by providing instruction on how school performance relates to career opportunities and personal development

    • work collaboratively with students, parents, and teachers to identify and remove barriers that may impede student achievement
