The Holmes Counseling Department supports the educational, career, personal, and social development of all students and is designed to include the following components: Guidance Curriculum, Individual Planning, Responsive Services, and System Support.
School counselors provide classroom guidance lessons that facilitate student growth and development in the areas of educational, career, personal, and social development in four curricular content areas: Intrapersonal Effectiveness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Post-Secondary Education and Career Readiness, and Personal Health and Safety.
The individual planning component guides students to plan, monitor, and manage their own educational, career, personal and social development. Each student is provided with necessary steps toward his/her established goals.
In this component, school counselors intervene with or on behalf of those students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grades whose personal circumstances, concerns, or problems are threatening to interfere with or are interfering with their healthy educational, personal, social, career and/or educational development.
The System Support component describes management activities which assure the delivery of a high quality school counseling program, and service which indirectly benefits students by supporting other programs.
