School counselor vs. guidance counselor

School Counselors Defined  Tennessee Bill #302

Passed May 24, 1999   

An act to re-designate guidance counselors as school counselors and to amend TCA (Tennessee Code Annotated), Title 49, accordingly. Be it enacted by the general assembly of the State of Tennessee: Section 1. TCA, Section 49-5-402(a), is amended by deleting the words "guidance counselor" wherever they appear and substituting the words "school counselor".

The state law was passed to formally changing the name from "guidance" counselor to school counselor. Professional school counselors, The American School Counseling Association, Tennessee School Counseling Association, and the Tennessee Department of Education have been working diligently to reconfigure the professional identity of PSCs from its historical guidance epistemology to a comprehensive developmental model. The professional school counselor is a certified/licensed educator (must have a Master's or higher in TN), is trained in school counseling with unique qualifications, and has skills to address all students' academic, personal/social and career development needs. Professional school counselors implement a comprehensive school counseling program that promotes and enhances student development.

In effect, WCHS employs school counselors, not guidance counselors in the Counseling Department.
