Meet the Counselors

  • A school counseling program is comprehensive in scope, preventive in design, and developmental in nature. School counseling programs are designed to ensure that every student receives the program benefits. Broward County’s Annual Guidance Plan is implemented district-wide through brief consultation, small-group settings, and classroom guidance lessons.

    Comprehensive in Scope
    A comprehensive school counseling program will focus on what all students, from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, should know, understand and be able to do in these three domain areas: academic, career, and personal/social. The emphasis is on academic success for every student, not just those students who are motivated, supported, and ready to learn. The school counseling program helps all students achieve success in school and develop into contributing members of society.

    Preventive in Design
    The purpose of the school counseling program is to impart specific skills and learning opportunities in a proactive, preventive manner, ensuring all students can achieve school success through academic, career, and personal/social development experiences.

    Developmental in Nature
    School counseling programs establish goals, expectations, support systems, and experiences for all students. They provide the rationale for school counselors, school administrators, faculty, parents or guardians, businesses, and the community to engage in conversations about expectations for students’ academic success and the role of counseling programs in enhancing student learning.

    School counselors implement a program based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model. They also provide resources to staff, students, families, and others to ensure that a family-friendly environment is established and ensure that students have access to a safe school climate necessary for academic and social/emotional growth.

    Parents are always welcome to come in or call 754-322-1550 for assistance or advice.
