Welcome to Counseling and Mental Health at ESC Region 15!
Role of the School Counselor
School counselors play an essential role in their students' education. They are tasked with preparing students to become productive and contributing members of society. They act as advocates for all students, promoting success in their personal and academic lives through a focus on achievement, prevention, and intervention activities, and social and career development. School counselors may achieve this in various ways, including, but not limited to delivery of guidance curriculum to support student development; individual and group counseling; individual student planning and goal-setting activities; consultation and coordination activities to support student success, and effective interpretation of student assessment data.
