What is a School Counseling Program?
A school counseling program reaches EVERY student and focuses on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for an individual's successful academic achievement, career development, and personal & social growth. A counselor's time is spent maximizing the benefits of a program that serves ALL students.
Roosevelt Elementary School’s Comprehensive School Counseling Program MISSION:
To help guide and support learners in their life-long journey of developing their best self: academically, socially and emotionally, career and college ready in a safe, caring, and challenging school community.
As the school counselor at Roosevelt Elementary School, I BELIEVE…
- All students can learn when given the proper support and will have the opportunity to achieve their own academic success in a safe, caring, encouraging, and challenging school community.
- A successful school counseling program works collaboratively with parents, students, staff, and community members to ensure every student reaches their potential.
- All students at Roosevelt Elementary School will leave our school with a strong sense they are valuable to the world, capable of setting and reaching their goals, independent and dynamic thinkers who can make informed decisions, and take responsibility for their own choices and behaviors.
- The school counselor is a “point guard” on an educational team working together to help our life-long learners develop and attain their academic goals, future dreams, and will guide them to be happy, thoughtful, and positively contributing citizens.
The Roosevelt Elementary School Comprehensive School Counseling Program will be an integral part of the total educational program; be comprehensive in scope, preventative in design, and developmental in nature; and be based on specific American School Counselor Association, Idaho School Counselor Association, and Boise School District standards that are measured and evaluated annually. We believe our school counselor will hold a state certification and have obtained a master’s degree in school counseling; abide by the professional school counseling ethics as advocated by the American School Counselor Association; and participate in professional development essential to maintaining a high-quality school counseling program.
