Mission

The mission of the Scotts Hill Elementary School Counseling Program is to decrease academic and non-academic barriers to student success, maximize every student’s social/emotional, educational, and career development potential, and to promote a culture of social responsibility and self-advocacy.

Vision


Every adult action reinforces the belief that all of our students can succeed in a college or career of their choice and be productive citizens in their community.


Beliefs

We believe:

  • All students can be successful.
  • All members of the SHES community have the right to access services provided by the school counselor.
  • School counselors are an integral part of multiple, collaborative teams that are working to ensure student success.
  • The school counselor is a safe person with whom students can share concerns, accomplishments, and personal goals.
  • School counselors must actively identify and provide additional support for children with at-risk characteristics.

We believe a comprehensive school counseling program should:

  • Reach all students.
  • Be an integral part of the total school program.
  • Equip students with the skills necessary for them to achieve their career goals.
  • Utilize a team approach to eliminate barriers in school achievement.
  • Conduct activities that contribute to the development of a positive school climate.
  • Recognize students’ individual abilities and assist them in maximizing their potentials.
  • Help students develop a healthy self-concept and an acceptance of individual differences.
  • Link programs with opportunities for students outside of the school.
  • Include the participation of teachers because of their direct involvement with students on a daily basis.
  • Foster a positive relationship between home and school.
  • Be designed and coordinated by the counselor(s) with input from all stakeholders.
  • Use data to drive the development and evaluation of the program.

We believe all school counselors will:

  • Adhere to the professional and ethical standards of the Tennessee School Counselors Association and the American School Counselor Association.
  • Set goals based on ASCA competencies and school data, provide quality work, and monitor data to evaluate the effectiveness of interventions.
  • Be held accountable for showing the impact they have on student achievement.
  • Strive for professional excellence through continued study and participation in professional organizations and workshops.
