School Counseling

The Howard-Suamico School District Comprehensive School Counseling Program is based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model, which integrates academic, career, and personal/social development. The school counseling program reflects the progression of student development from pre-kindergarten through Grade 12. It is delivered through a direct service program consisting of the following components:

School Counseling Individual Responsive System

Curriculum Planning Services Support

The program is systematic, sequential, clearly defined, and accountable. DPI licensed school counselors develop, implement and assess all program components through collaboration with teachers, parents/guardians, administrators, students and community/business contacts. Curriculum delivery is a collaborative effort of all school staff. The counseling program helps ensure equal opportunity for all students to participate fully in the educational process.

•  Program based rather than position based with services for all students preK-12

•  Programs begin on the first day of school and end on the last

•  Strong emphasis on student, parent, and counselor involvement

•  Shared ownership with staff, administration, and the community

•  Resources: the human, financial, and community resources required to develop and operate the program effectively and efficiently

Four Program Components Include:

•  School Counseling Curriculum: content delivered in a systematic manner to all students

•  Individual Planning: assist students in planning and managing their academic, personal/social, and career development

•  Responsive Services: address the personal/social concerns of students

•  System Support: includes program, staff, and school support activities
