The focus for the week is on the unique contributions of professional school counselors in Carroll County Public Schools. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact that counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
School counselors are actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests, and talents. They work in partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of raising children in today’s world and focus on positive ways to enhance students’ social/personal, educational, and career development. School counselors also work with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic, and optimistic goals for themselves.
