Georgetown ISD school counselors provide curriculum services according to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model to students, parents, school staff and the community. Additional information about the ASCA National Model can be found here.
The school counseling curriculum consists of structured lessons designed to help students attain the desired competencies and provides all students with the knowledge, attitudes and skills appropriate for their developmental level. The school counseling core curriculum is delivered throughout the school’s overall curriculum and is systematically presented by school counselors in collaboration with other professional educators in K-12 classroom and group activities.
Georgetown ISD utilizes a number of resources to support and implement a comprehensive counseling curriculum. The list below includes some examples of programs used in GISD schools:
