The mission of the Bernice Kiker Comprehensive Counseling Program is to support the academic success, the personal, social and emotional development of our students using best practice school counseling strategies to help them become our future leaders and contributors of a global society.
We follow the standards of TEA (Texas Education Agency) and ASCA (American School Counselors Association) to provide a comprehensive counseling program for students. This program consists of four domains:
Guidance Curriculum: Provide developmental curriculum content in a systematic way to all students.
Examples: Classroom guidance lessons, small groups to develop social, emotional, or academic skills
Responsive Services: Provide developmental curriculum content in a systematic way to all students.
Example: Individual counseling sessions, crisis counseling, meetings with students about behavioral issues
Individual Planning: Assist students in developing educational, career, and personal plans.
Examples: Advising new students about classes/schedules, 5th grade transition to middle school and new student transition support
System Support: Plan and evaluate the school counseling and engage in school support activities.
Examples: Professional training, serving on school committees, supporting 504 placement and plans
