Counselors Corner

Richland School Counseling Services

Guidance and counseling services are available to all students and are an integral part of each school's total educational program. The Richland R-IV School District uses the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance Program, which is a developmental program that includes activities organized and implemented by school counselors. The program addresses the needs of all students by helping them acquire competencies in career planning and exploration, knowledge of self and others, and educational and vocational development. Additionally, the program is delivered through the following four components:

  1. School Counseling Curriculum (classroom presentations)

  2. Individual Student Planning (Individual Career and Academic Planning - ICAP)

  3. Responsive Services (individual counseling and referrals)

  4. System Support (professional development, community relations, consultation, committee work, and research)
