WHAT IS THE COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL COUNSELING PROGRAM?
Cedar Hill ISD follows the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model for Delivery
School Counselors provide services to students, parents, school staff and the community in the following ways:
- School counseling core curriculum: This curriculum consists of structured lessons designed to help students attain the desired competencies and to provide all students with the knowledge, attitudes and skills appropriate for their development level. The school counseling core curriculum is delivered throughout the school's overall curriculum and is systematically presented by school counselors in collaboration with other professional educators in K-12 classroom and group activities.
- Individual student planning:School counselors coordinate ongoing systemic activities designed to assist students in establishing personal goals and developing future plans
- Responsive services: Responsive services are activities designed to meet students' immediate needs and concerns. Responsive services may include counseling in individual or small-group settings or crisis response.
- Indirect student services: Indirect services are provided on behalf of students as a result of the school counselors' interactions with others including referrals for additional assistance, consultation and collaboration
