The mission of Boundary Street Elementary School's Counseling Program is to promote the academic, personal/social, and career success of all students through collaborative efforts involving the home, school, and community as part of a comprehensive, systemic, and developmental curriculum by engaging in activities across five domains: Leadership, Advocacy, Teaming and Collaboration, Counseling and Coordination, and Assessment and Usage of Data.
Responsibilities of the School Counselor include the following:
A. Classroom Guidance
The purpose of Classroom Guidance is for the Professional School Counselor to plan, instruct, and evaluate education-enriching lessons that are designed to increase students’ competencies in academic, career, and personal/social content areas.
B. Individual Student Planning
The purpose of Individual Student Planning is to provide pupils with the support, skills, and knowledge necessary to set personal goals and to systematically monitor their progress towards achieving said goals. Individual planning is preventive and takes into consideration the developmental stage of each student.
C. Responsive Services
The purpose of Responsive Services is to assist students and/or their families with problems or issues that may arise. In some cases, referrals must be made to agencies and organizations who are better equipped to serve them.
D. System Support
The purpose of System Support is to work with school personnel, community organizations, special committees, and teams to coordinate and enhance the comprehensive school counseling program. This helps to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of service delivery to students and their families.
