Reeds Spring Elementary Counseling Program
The counselor provides 30 minute classroom guidance lessons to students on a regular basis. Lessons include topics related to personal and social development, academic development and career development.
The counselor is available to meet with students individually or in a small group setting. Students may refer themselves or they may be referred by a parent or teacher. Students may be referred to outside agencies also.
The counselor helps students meet personal and educational goals. One way the counselor assists in this area is by administering tests that measure cognitive ability to students referred for gifted or special education services. The counselor is also available to interpret cognitive and achievement testing results. The counselor is a member of the Response to Intervention (RtI) Team. This team sets goals, monitors progress, and makes recommendations to promote student success by meeting the individual needs of students. Attending special education meetings or parent/teacher conferences is another way the counselor can assist in a student’s personal and educational planning.
The counselor manages the counseling program and enhances it through public relations, staff support, coordination of special activities and programs, and by participating in professional development.
