What is a Student Services Team?

The goal of the Student Services Team is to help every student improve academic achievement, personal and social development, and career planning. This is done through collaboration with students, parents, and school staff and by following a comprehensive guidance curriculum which includes meeting with students on an individual, small group, and classroom setting. In addition, Student Services Team members are instrumental in the transition between grade levels and are in charge of course selection and scheduling classes for every student.

What is comprehensive guidance?

The School Counseling program is a comprehensive, preventative, and data-driven program. Our mission, as Professional School Counselors, is to ensure that all students have access to services addressing their academic, career, personal/ social, and multicultural needs. This is accomplished through leadership, advocacy, collaboration, and systemic change. In doing so, we strive to contribute towards the district’s goal of aiding in the overall development and academic success of each student.

Professional school counselors are certified counselors trained in school counseling, possessing the unique qualifications and skills to address all students’ academic, personal/social, career and developmental needs. They have a master’s degree or higher in school counseling or related field, uphold the ethical and professional standards of professional counseling associations, and play a vital role in maximizing student achievement.

Student Services Team members, including Professional School Counselors, ESOL Compliance Specialist, Staffing Specialist, CTE Specialist, College & Career Specialist, SAFE Coordinator, Testing Coordinator, Academic Coaches, and more, are responsible for working together to incorporate leadership, advocacy, and collaboration to promote equity and access to opportunities and rigorous educational experiences for all students. Collaborating with other stakeholders to promote student achievement, professional school counselors address the needs of all students through prevention and intervention programs that are a part of a comprehensive school counseling programs.
