THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR'S ROLE
School counselors design and deliver school counseling programs that improve student outcomes. They lead, advocate and collaborate to promote equity and access for all students by connecting their school counseling program to the school’s academic mission and school improvement plan. They uphold the ethical and professional standards of ASCA and promote the development of the school counseling program based on the following areas of the ASCA National Model: define, deliver, manage and assess.
Mission and Vision
From a foundation of genuine, unconditional, and positive regard, we will treat, serve, and respect all students solely by name and individual need.
The mission of EPISD’s counseling program is to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. Professional School Counselors, in partnership with other educators, parents or guardians, and the community ensure that all students have access to and are prepared with the knowledge and skills to contribute at the highest level as productive members of society.
