The Elementary Counselor Page: The Heart of the Campus

  • According to the American School Counselor Association, “Gone are the days of school counselors sitting in their office simply handing out college applications, making schedule changes for students who want to drop a class, or meeting with the troublemakers in the school. Today’s school counselors are vital members of the education team. They 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.”
    Region One Education Service Center offers expert assistance, information updates and high-quality training to support counselors, social workers, and other school staff members designated to ensure the mental health and wellness of the children in Region One.
