    Allen ISD Counseling Program Mission Statement
    The mission of Allen ISD Counseling Program is to provide a comprehensive, developmenta counseling program addressing the academic, career, personal/social development of all students.  School counselors are professional school advocates who provide support to maximize student potential and academic achievement.  In partnership with other educators, parents or guardians and the community, school counselors facilitate the sipport system to ensure all students in AISD have access to and are prepared with the knowledge and skills to contribute at the highest level as productive members of society.
     
     Confidentiality

    While it is important that a student’s  conversations with a school counselor be kept confidential, confidentiality  does have its limitations. According to the American School Counselor Association’s Ethical Standards for School Counselors, counselors must  “keep information confidential unless legal requirements demand that  confidential information be revealed or a breach is required to prevent serious  and foreseeable harm to the student” (American School Counselor Association [ASCA], 2010).

    The most frequent type of breaches include a student verbalizing the
     following:

    1)      Verbal, Physical or Sexual Abuse

    2)      Neglect

    3)      A desire to harm him/herself

    4)      A desire to harm someone else

    5)      An unreported sexual assault
