WHAT DO SCHOOL COUNSELORS DO?
Our counselors provide support for students and are often the first to recognize and address students’ social and emotional issues, career and academic needs. School counselors function as advocates, collaborators and leaders.
This is done primarily through a Comprehensive School Counseling Program (CSCP) aligned with our district’s vision, mission, school improvement goals and the Washington Multi-Tiered System of Supports Framework.
