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.
East Palestine City Schools Counseling Philosophy
The East Palestine School District adheres to the philosophy that the school counseling program is an essential and integral part of the overall education process. The comprehensive program is built on the assumption that certain academic, career, and personal objectives are attainable when school counseling for all students is provided. This implementation acknowledges that school counseling is no longer a service to be offered by one person but a program coordinated with other educators incorporating a comprehensive curriculum.
