School counselors address the needs of all students by facilitating their academic, career, and personal/social development as well as creating a positive and safe learning environment. At DES, the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program model is implemented and includes the core components of:

       1.  Guidance Curriculum (classroom lessons and group activities)
                                            
       2. Individual Student Planning (transition activities and academic concerns)
                                          
       3. Responsive Services (small groups, crisis intervention, and resource referrals)
                                          
       4. System Support (program management and professional development)
