    Vaughan Elementary

    Counseling Program Mission Statement

    Vaughan’s School Counseling Program provides a comprehensive, developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career and social/emotional development of all students.  In partnership with educators, families and the community Vaughan’s counseling program facilitates the support system to ensure all Vaughan students have access, knowledge and skills to realize their full potential.

     

    Delivery System

    Guidance and Counseling services are provided at Vaughan in four ways.

    1.     School Guidance Curriculum:  Teaches all students how to develop transferable skills; uses differentiated, developmental learning activities with planned lessons for various sized groups of students

    2.     Responsive Services:  Intervenes on behalf of students whose immediate personal concerns or circumstances put their continued educational, career, personal and social development at risk; is based on level of need, so it may be preventive, remedial or crisis oriented (consultation, individual and small-group counseling, crisis counseling/response, referrals, peer facilitation, etc.) 

    3.     Individual Student Planning:  Guides all students as they plan, monitor and manage their individual educational, career, personal and social development; provides parents and guardians information on future options

    4.     System Support:  Identifies and coordinates resources and activities on campus and in the community that indirectly benefit students; assesses student and campus data to support an effective school counseling program (professional development, consultation, collaboration and teaming, program management and operation)
