- All scholars will have an opportunity to achieve their academic, social and personal goals and be productive members of society.
- All scholars will have an opportunity to access a comprehensive counseling program that is developmental in nature and driven by campus data.
- The role of the school counselor is to collaborate with scholars, teachers, parents, administration and other stakeholders to provide opportunities for personal, social and academic growth.
- Counselors advocate for all scholars by being part of the administration team, thus being leaders, advocates, and collaborators that create equity and opportunity for all.
- All scholars have access to a full-time, certified, licensed professional school counselor and counseling program that has a delivery system that includes school curriculum, individual planning and responsive services and system support that has a direct correlation to student achievement.
- School counselors and other stakeholders use data for planning, managing, delivery and evaluation of program activities.
- Using the ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors allows the counselors to make sound decisions-based principles that have the best interest of scholars in mind.
