Plano ISD Elementary Counseling
The elementary guidance program in Plano ISD has a focus on academic success, personal and social growth (including personal safety), and career and college information. A developmental school guidance program includes activities that are organized and implemented by certified school counselors and are based on identified student needs. The elementary counselors respond to student and family needs with the guidance curriculum, responsive services, individual planning, and system support. The guidance curriculum components are self-confidence, motivation to achieve, decision-making (including goal-setting, planning, problem-solving skills), interpersonal effectiveness (including social skills), communication skills, cross-cultural effectiveness, and responsible behavior. Elementary counselors deliver bi-weekly guidance lessons to all students that support and promote the learning process.
