Responsive services and implementation strategies may include individual/small group counseling, consultation, outside referrals, crisis counseling, crisis/safety plans and school response teams, or academic probation counseling.
Individual planning is a key support area for middle and high students as these counselors help students select their courses for the following school year. As course changes made after the master schedule has been developed are difficult to accommodate, it is essential that students confer with the counselors to make appropriate selections.
At the elementary and middle school levels, a Guidance Curriculum provides guidance content in a systematic manner through scheduled instructional periods. At the high school level, college counseling becomes a priority, and thus the high school counselor advises students and parents about college preparatory standardized tests, advising students about various universities around the world, and assisting with the college application process.
