The Baldwin-Woodville School District Comprehensive School Counseling Program is an integral part of the primary education of the district. This program supports, facilitates and encourages classroom instruction and student achievement. Our school counseling program is proactive and preventive in its focus. It assists students in acquiring and using life-long learning skills. More specifically, our school counseling program employs strategies to enhance academics, encourage self-awareness, foster interpersonal communication skills, provide career awareness, develop employment readiness, and impart life skills for all students.
Definition and Rationale
The Baldwin-Woodville School District's Comprehensive School Counseling Program is based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model, which integrates academic, career, and personal /social development. The school counseling program reflects the progression of student development from 4K through grade 12. It is delivered through a direct service program consisting of the following components:
- School Counseling Curriculum
- Individual Planning
- Responsive Services
- System Support
The program is systematic, sequential, clearly defined, and accountable. DPI licensed school counselors develop, implement, and assess all program components through collaboration with teachers, parents/guardians, administrators, students, and community/businesses. Curriculum delivery is a collaborative effort of all school staff. The school counseling program helps ensure equal opportunity for all students to participate fully in the educational process.
