This brings awareness to the public on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are positively affected because of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
This special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who facilitate comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.
Pleasanton ISD values their counselors for being actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents; for working in a partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising children in today's world; for focusing on positive ways to enhance students' social/personal, educational and career development; and working with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic and optimistic aspirations for themselves. Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master's degree in guidance and counseling. The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total educational program.
