Comprehensive Guidance Program Philosophy

The School District of Washington believes the guidance program is an integral part of the educational process. Since students develop emotionally, socially and educationally, the guidance program must address total growth and development. Growth and learning are developmental; therefore, guidance must be developmental and sequential. The need for guidance begins with preschool and continues throughout life.

 

The K-12 developmental program is concerned with all students while recognizing that individuals will continue to have needs that will require special attention. As a result, the comprehensive guidance program is for all students and becomes developmental rather than crisis oriented.

Comprehensive Guidance Program Definition

Guidance and counseling are an integral part of each schools total educational curriculum. It is developmental by design and includes sequential activities organized and implemented by certified school counselors with the support of teachers, administrators, students and parents. The guidance program includes:

  • Guidance Curriculum
  • Individual Planning
  • Responsive Services
  • System Support

 

The guidance program is designed to address the needs of all students by helping them to acquire competencies in career planning and exploration, knowledge of self and others, and educational and vocational development.
