Grundy Center School Counseling Framework

Grundy Center Comprehensive School Counseling Program is modeled after the American School Counselor Association (ASCA)

The National Model is guidance for our program to ensure that ALL students personal/social development, academic development and career planning are addressed, K-12.
ASCA National Model
School counselors provide services to students, parents, school staff and the community in the following areas:

Direct Student Services
Direct services are in-person interactions between school counselors and students and include the following:

School counseling core curriculum: This curriculum consists of structured lessons designed to help students attain the desired competencies and to provide all students with the knowledge, attitudes and skills appropriate for their developmental level. The school counseling core curriculum is delivered throughout the school’s overall curriculum and is systematically presented by school counselors in collaboration with other professional educators in K-12 classroom and group activities.

Individual student planning: School counselors coordinate ongoing systemic activities designed to assist students in establishing personal goals and developing future plans.

Responsive services: Responsive services are activities designed to meet students’ immediate needs and concerns. Responsive services may include counseling in individual or small-group settings or crisis response.

Indirect Student Services
Indirect services are provided on behalf of students as a result of the school counselors’ interactions with others including referrals for additional assistance, consultation and collaboration with parents, teachers, other educators and community organizations.

Confidentiality

There are often times that I meet with students individually or in small groups.  The following is similar to what I post in my office about confidentiality between students and school counselor.

COUNSELING CONFIDENTIALITY RULES:
WHAT YOU SAY IN HERE WILL STAY IN HERE UNLESS... YOU HURT YOURSELF. SOMEONE HURTS  YOU. YOU HURT SOMEONE ELSE.
