Leadership, Support and Service to Prepare All Students for Success

Dr. Nancy Kotowski, County Superintendent of Schools

Wordle-Counselors.pngSchool counseling programs are collaborative efforts benefiting students, parents, teachers, administrators and the overall community. School counseling programs should be an integral part of students' daily educational environment, and school counselors should be partners in student achievement. 

The development of The California Standards for the School Counseling Profession represents a concerted effort to articulate the common expectancies that define the practice of the school counseling profession in our state. The intent of the Standards document is to establish the core content of quality school counseling practice. We hope that implementation of these standards will enhance the quality of school counseling throughout California schools. 

The California Standards will guide the work of California school counselors through a shared vision and will help ensure that all California students are well served by the counseling and guidance programs provided by professional school counselors.
