CPSD Comprehensive Counseling Program

The district comprehensive counseling program consists of a sequence of planned lessons designed to help all students focus on academic, career, and personal/social development so they achieve success in school and are prepared to lead fulfilling lives as responsible members of society. The program standards are aligned to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) competencies and are supported by OSPI.

  • The academic development standards promote strategies and activities that optimize the learning potential of each student and support the relationship between academic development and readiness for career, college, and life. 
  • The career development standards help students make the critical connections between their High School and Beyond Plan and the transition they must make to post-secondary life.
  • The personal and social development standards provide a proven foundation for personal and social growth that helps students manage their emotions and develop effective interpersonal skills.

The comprehensive counseling program promotes student achievement, increases school attendance, positively impacts student behavior, and creates a Career and College ready school culture.
