The Woodburn School District's Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program is based on Oregon’s Framework for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs and upon the American School Counseling Association’s (ASCA) National Model. We believe that students need academic, career, personal-social, and community involvement skills and knowledge for success in school and in life. These are attainable when the program is provided in an equitable, consistent and developmental way for every student. We also believe that a comprehensive guidance and counseling program is an essential and integral part of our district’s educational program. With that in mind, School Counseling is a program, not a collection of supplemental or ancillary services. It is integrated into the entire educational program and is designed to reach all students. It is both prevention and intervention focused. It is organized and implemented systematically. It is accountable and data-driven.
The WSD counseling program is an essential component of the educational experience of all students. K-12 Counseling Programs address the needs of the whole student. A comprehensive school counseling program is developmental and sequential in nature. This comprehensive program addresses students’ needs in three domains: academic, social-emotional, and college and career. All students have the right to the benefits of a proactive and preventive program designed to maximize success for each person, while minimizing the frequency and impact of crisis, students experience of a well-designed school counseling program, will better prepare students to meet the challenges of life and work.
