What we do:
Today’s school counselors are vital members of the education team. Peninsula School District counselors help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development, ensuring today’s students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. This mission is accomplished through the design, development, implementation and evaluation of a comprehensive, developmental and systematic school-counseling program. The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs, with its data-driven and results-based focus, serves as a guide for today’s school counselor, who is uniquely trained to implement this program. They are professional educators with a mental health perspective who understand and respond to the challenges presented by today’s diverse student population. They hold a master’s degree and the required state certification in school counseling.
