Guidance Services

  • Guidance Services are designed to increase and enhance learning and achievement for all students and to assist them in making educational and personal choices that hold promise for their personal fulfillment as responsible members of the community. The goal of the school counseling programs in EWSD is to enhance academics, encourage self-awareness, foster interpersonal communication skills, provide career awareness and teach life success skills for all students. Each school has a Guidance Office that is accessible to parents, students, faculty and staff. The guidance program is coordinated with school instructional programs, and guidance counselors teach health and personal development appropriate to each grade level.  Guidance Services emphasize consultation with teachers, administrators, and parents on matters of student growth and development.
