COUNSELING CURRICULUM



   Approved by the School Board: March 6, 2008




                                                 1
                                      I. INTRODUCTION

       In 1990, recognizing the value of school counseling in our schools, the Timberlane Regional
School District agreed to adopt the NH Comprehensive Developmental Guidance and Counseling
Program. A needs assessment was completed and training was provided by the NH Department of
Education, but the district’s plan was never fully implemented.


       Since that time, the NH Board of Education has withdrawn, and then reinstated, its endorsement of
a state comprehensive model. In addition, there have been many improvements and revisions over time to
the original concept of comprehensive developmental school counseling programs. In 2003, the American
School Counselor Association incorporated the best of the country’s many programs into the ASCA
National Model. (The state has included the comprehensive developmental school guidance and
counseling program in the revisions to minimum standards.)


       An effective developmental and comprehensive school counseling program provides a solid
framework for ensuring that our students are well prepared to meet the academic, social/emotional and
career challenges presented to them. The program supports students in meeting academic standards, is
integral to providing a safe and secure environment for learning, reduces dangerous and counterproductive
risk taking behaviors, and enhances student resiliency. The Timberlane Comprehensive School Guidance
and Counseling Program (TCSGCP) will support the goals delineated in the district’s strategic plan and
will comply with all state guidelines and curriculum frameworks.



       The National Center for School Counseling Outcome Research concurs:
       … the implementation of a Comprehensive Developmental Guidance Program will result in
       educational benefits including increased student achievement, more equitable services to students,
       broader impact on student development and career decision-making, student satisfaction with the
       relevance of their education, and the development of a safe, orderly, connected school climate.
       (Lapan, Gysbers & Sun, 1997, in School Counseling Research Brief 1.1, January 15, 2003)


       The counselors in the district have reviewed several state, district and school models of
comprehensive school counseling programs, as well as literature from experts in the field, and have
created this document, which best represents our own goals, aspirations, and district operating philosophy.




                                                                                                      2
       The TCSGCP is written to reflect an organizational framework and approach based on ASCA’s
National Model, the NH Curriculum Frameworks and proposed state Minimum Standards, and current
best practices. Language used in the document is consistent with comprehensive developmental models.
This language gives structure to the program, enables straightforward communication at all levels, and a
basis for results evaluation. The TCSGCP provides a strong framework for the program’s components and
mechanisms for ongoing management and evaluation.


       With a robust comprehensive developmental school counseling program and guidance curriculum
in place, conducted with the active support and cooperation of other school staff, Timberlane’s students
will improve their study skills, and direct their emotions and behaviors to develop positive interpersonal
relations and cooperative learning and work skills. They will build confidence by improving their goal
setting, decision-making and problem solving capabilities. They will become productive and responsible
citizens. The beneficial results of the TCSGCP will also extend to administration, staff, parents and the
community.




                                                                                                     3
                                        II. FOUNDATION

Mission Statement
        The mission of the Timberlane Regional School District’s school counseling program is to provide
all students with the academic, personal and social skills necessary to become responsible, productive and
respectful individuals who develop into contributing members of society. The integrated program is
comprehensive and developmentally appropriate.


        In partnership with students, staff, family, community members, and employers, the counseling
program prepares all students to achieve success in school, become lifelong learners and live healthy and
fulfilling lives.



Rationale
        School counseling is an essential component of each school’s overall educational program,
supporting academic success for each student. It is based on the belief that each student possesses intrinsic
worth and specific rights, and is a unique and dynamic person capable of personal growth, lifelong
learning and self- direction. The comprehensive school counseling program supports the development of
the competencies and skills that students will acquire to meet standards and expectations established by
the state, the community and the district, and prepares our students to meet the challenges of life, work
and citizenship.


        The Timberlane Comprehensive School Guidance and Counseling Program (TCSGCP) is
intentionally designed to be data driven and developmental, and contains sequential activities that are
organized and implemented by certified school counselors, teachers, and administrators, and other staff in
collaboration with students, parents/guardians, and members of the local community. The program seeks
to meet the needs of all students in three domains – academic, social/emotional, and career.             The
developmental aspect of the school counseling program focuses on attaining results related to skill
acquisition and prevention, while the remedial aspect of the program ensures the provision of services that
respond to immediate needs and concerns of students.




                                                                                                       4
Philosophy Statement
   The Timberlane Comprehensive School Guidance and Counseling Program (TCSGCP) believes that
all students at all grade levels will have access to a full-time certified school counselor and have a right to
participate in the guidance program. The program will be based on specified goals and will be an integral
part of the students’ education, through which students prepare for meaningful and rewarding lives as
productive members in a changing society.


Role of the School Counselor
       In the Timberlane School District, the role of the school counselor is to support the Grade K-12
School Guidance and Counseling Program by facilitating student development in academic, career and
personal/social areas. The school counselor is a trained and certified professional, who works with
students, administrators, teachers, parents and the community to promote a safe and successful learning
environment. The school counselor assists all students within the total educational program to become
effective learners, responsible citizens, and contributing members of society. On-going communication
and information exchange with parents/guardians are vital to all aspects of the School Guidance and
Counseling Program and is a key part of the counselor’s role.


       School counselors plan, implement and evaluate developmental guidance curriculum programs
that address the needs and priorities of their individual schools. Their work is further differentiated by
attention to age-specific developmental stages of student growth, and by the needs, tasks, and student
interests related to those stages. These programs are determined by needs assessments, integrated into the
existing curriculum, and taught in collaboration with classroom teachers.


        School counselors coordinate individual student planning which consists of ongoing systemic
activities designed to help individual students establish personal goals and develop future plans.


       School counselors deliver responsive services to all students to meet their immediate needs and
concerns. These services can be delivered through such strategies as consultation, individual and small
group counseling, crises counseling, referrals and peer facilitation.


       System support is an essential element of school counseling.             System support consists of
management activities that establish and maintain and enhance the total school-counseling program.



                                                                                                         5
Counselors incorporate organizational processes and tools to ensure the program is structured, concrete,
clearly delineated, and reflective of the school’s needs. These processes and tools further ensure that the
primary focus of the professional school counselor’s time is the delivery of direct service with students.


       School counselors engage in regular evaluation of their programs and practices, to demonstrate
program effectiveness in measurable terms, using immediate, intermediate, and long-range data to show
the impact on students and student performance. These results are also used to inform the ongoing
evolution of the counseling program. Counselors use their leadership and advocacy skills to promote
systemic change by adhering to ethical, legal and professional standards that are outlined in the American
School Counselor Association’s National Model. The standards of practice additionally form the basis for
evaluating the performance of counselors.


        School counselors are involved regularly in updating and sharing their professional knowledge
and skills. They consult, collaborate and team with colleagues, parents and administration regularly in
order to provide information, to support the school community and to receive feedback on the emerging
needs of students.


       In addition, school counselors plan and manage tasks needed to support activities conducted in the
school counseling program. This includes fulfilling responsibilities as a staff member, such as budgeting,
facilities, policies and procedures and research and resource development.


        Finally, school counselors advocate and educate the public as to the role of the professional school
counselor.


Domains and Standards
     The Timberlane Comprehensive School Guidance and Counseling Program (TCSGCP) enables all

students from Gr. K-12 to achieve success in school and to develop into contributing members of our

society through activities pertaining to the academic, career and social/emotional domains derived from

ASCA’s National Standards for Students (Competencies and Indicators), and the New Hampshire Career

Education Curriculum Framework.




                                                                                                        6

                                                                                                        7
                             III. PROGRAM DELIVERY SYSTEM

Curriculum Component
           The Timberlane Comprehensive School Guidance and Counseling Program (TCSGCP) curriculum
is a statement of structured experiences that all students should learn in a systematic and sequential
manner. The curriculum component consists of student competencies and structured activities presented
through regular education classrooms and group activities. These activities may include a variety of
resources and materials.        The curriculum is organized around three major developmental domains:
knowledge of self and others, educational development, and career planning and exploration.
           The purpose of the TCSGCP Curriculum is:
    •      to provide students with knowledge of normal growth and development,
    •      to promote positive personal growth, and
    •      to assist them to acquire and use skills necessary for fulfillment in their many life roles. While the
counselor’s responsibility includes the organization of the counseling curriculum, other faculty and staff
participate in its implementation. Integration into the existing curriculum framework will ensure positive
results.


Individual Student Planning
           Individual student planning consists of guidance and school counselors who coordinate ongoing
systemic activities designed to help students establish personal goals and develop future plans. Guidance
and school counselors coordinate activities that help all students plan, monitor and manage their own
learning as well as meet competencies in the areas of academic, career and personal/social development.
Within this component, students develop the capacity to evaluate their educational, occupational and
personal goals. Guidance and school counselors help students make the transition between successive
levels of schooling, from school to the workplace, and from school to higher education or career/technical
training. These activities are generally delivered on an individual basis or by working with small groups
in and out of the classroom. Parents or guardians and other school personnel are often included in these
activities.

    Individual planning with students is implemented through such strategies as:

•   Individual or small group appraisal: Guidance and school counselors work with students analyzing
    and evaluating students’ abilities, interests, skills and achievement. Test information and other data


                                                                                                           8
    are often used as the basis for helping students develop immediate and long-range plans. In high
    school, counselors should meet with students yearly to develop and revise students’ academic plans.


•   Individual or small group advisement: Guidance and school counselors advise students using
    personal/social, educational, career, and labor market information in planning personal, educational
    and occupational goals. The involvement of students themselves, their parents/guardians, and the
    school in planning students’ programs that meet student needs is critical.


Examples of topics covered in this area are:
•   Test score review, interpretation and analysis
•   Promotion and retention information
•   Career decision-making
•   Yearly course selection
•   Financial aid
•   Interest inventories
•   Senior exit surveys
•   Social skills
•   Test-taking strategies
•   College selection
•   Job shadowing
•   Senior planning appointments
•   Review of behavior plans


Responsive Services
        The responsive services of the TCSGCP exist along a continuum from prevention activities to
crisis management and are designed to address students’ immediate and/or urgent needs. Programs and
activities are implemented to assist students with relationship difficulties, personal concerns, normal
developmental challenges issues, and other conditions adversely impacting students in the realm of
academics, personal/social development, or career development.


        Students may self-refer for services. Teachers, other staff members, or parents/guardians may also
refer a student to a school counselor. The counselor responds to students’ needs in the form of individual


                                                                                                     9
counseling, small group counseling, classroom counseling programs, crisis counseling - including suicide
intervention, peer facilitation, and referrals. Consultation and collaboration with school personnel, parents,
and community mental health providers are also a regular part of responsive services.


       The nature of individual and group counseling provided by school counselors is generally short-
term and psycho-educational. That is, the school counselor does not provide therapy. When students
present a need for services beyond the scope of the school counselor’s role, the counselor will make a
referral to the appropriate community providers.


System Support
System support consists of management activities that establish, maintain and enhance the comprehensive
school guidance and counseling program. These activities include:
   •   Program evaluation and assessment
   •   Professional development
   •   School staff and community public relations
   •   Community outreach
   •   Materials development
   •   Program operations and management


Program evaluation and assessment are the keys to evaluating program outcomes and continued
development of curriculum to improve guidance and counseling program. Yearly assessment of goals and
program outcomes provides useful data to communicate the effectiveness of the guidance and counseling
program.


Professional Development ensures that counselors regularly update their knowledge and skills. This
professional development should focus on those skills associated with the role of the school counselor.
The comprehensive guidance and school counseling program supports this focus and minimizes the time
counselors spend in non-related professional development activities.




                                                                                                       10
School Staff and Community public relations provide information on the nature and services
of the comprehensive guidance and counseling programs through presentations to parents, staff and
community organizations. This activity promotes a clear understanding and positive awareness of the
scope of the school counseling function.


Community Outreach enables school counselors to be more knowledgeable about community resources
and services. Making connections and maintaining active networking with community with local and area
agencies is an important part of an effective comprehensive guidance and counseling program.


Materials Development encompasses a variety of research materials such as self-help booklets, career
and employment information materials; guides for post secondary planning, newsletters and other
information. The materials are either acquired or created in-house, based on identified needs of students
and other groups.


Program Operations and Management includes planning and other tasks needed to support all of the
activities associated with a comprehensive program, including the development and monitoring of budget,
facilities, staffing and personnel, and equipment, needs on a yearly basis.




                                                                                                  11
                                      IV. MANAGEMENT

Counselor/Principal Communication
       While counselors’ specific duties and the allocation of their time and workload will vary from
school to school, it is important to have consensus within each building on the scope and nature of the
delivery of services by each counselor. Accordingly, the counselor and the principal may schedule a
meeting at the beginning of each year to review the expectations and responsibilities of the counseling
staff. These activities may be reviewed on a regular basis as part of the evaluation of each staff member,
and may be updated and/or revised as necessary to reflect changing priorities, needs, and conditions.


Advisory Committees
       Timberlane School District has had a long history of collaborative partnerships with community
members, and in the use of advisory committees and coalitions. Community teams such as the Safe and
Drug Free School Advisory Council, the Community Action Team (CAT), and the Resiliency Committee
have the primary purposes of developing and overseeing activities that promote health lifestyles, and of
fostering a community-wide effort in supporting healthy families and lifestyle decisions.               These
complement the district’s comprehensive guidance goals.


       Timberlane‘s advisory committees are intended to have a broad representation of our stakeholders.
Current membership includes students, parents, teachers, counselors, nurses, school administrators, school
board members, law enforcement, Juvenile Justice, mental health providers, prevention providers, faith
and spiritual community members, and members of the business community. The school counselors, in
rotation, serve as the Chairperson.


       The general membership is asked to attend quarterly or semi-annual meetings for needs
assessment, review of data collection, update on action plan progress, review of overall goals and
objectives.   Sub-committees meet on a monthly or as needed for action planning. The Advisory
Committee reviews and makes recommendations based on relevant data from a variety of sources,
including the Youth Risk Behavior Survey, school discipline records, and dropout rates. This helps
identify needs to be addressed in a comprehensive approach, which encompasses both the school
counseling program, and collaborative, community-wide action planning.




                                                                                                        12
Actions Plans
       Action plans are a desirable and useful tool in responding to identified needs, implementing
specific steps, and clearly identifying who will be responsible for which steps, and the schedule for
implementation. In order to efficiently and effectively deliver the TCSGCP, school counselors may decide
to use action plans to guide curriculum development and accountability (results) measures.


Use of Data
       Data collection provides the school counseling program with information needed to evaluate the
program as it relates to students’ progress. Data collection occurs both before and after the counseling
activity to document what worked, what did not work, and what changes or improvements should be
considered and recommended.


       Programs can be assessed for effectiveness during implementation. Data are primarily collected
on three different schedules.       Short-term data provide an immediate evaluation of the activity.
Intermediate data collection occurs over a longer period of time and can serve as a benchmark or indicator
of progress toward a particular set of goals. Long-term data collection occurs over an extended period of
time and measures the activity’s overall results for students, and the corresponding impact on student
learning.


Use of Time
       The proportion of time devoted to the different functional areas of individual planning, responsive
services, and system support will vary according to the level of the school, the needs of the students, the
number of counselors in the school, and the number of students each counselor is assigned to serve.
Primary consideration must be given to the needs of the students as determined by assessment measures.
Although there may be different percentages in the distribution of the school counselors’ time between the
components of the delivery system and the levels served, TCSGCP recommends that 80% of the school
counselor’s time should be spent in direct service, with the remainder of time spent on program
management. Non-counseling activities should be kept to an absolute minimum in order to minimize the
potentially negative effect on results.




                                                                                                    13
Calendars
       Since school counselors devote a large part of their time to direct service to students, it is
important that they make effective use of time management in implementing the curriculum and
individual planning program components. A written plan, incorporating a calendar for the scheduling of
service delivery on a monthly and yearly basis, but with allowances for flexibility as needs arise, should
be developed and maintained by each counselor and by each school’s guidance and counseling staff. In
addition to contributing to the effective use of the counselor’s time, the calendar can be a valuable tool in
establishing their responsibilities, and documenting activities, workload, and program outcomes.


       In developing their calendars, individual schools will be guided by the percentages of time needed
for each program component (curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, system support). Once
the time lines are established, a schedule for delivering the curriculum and individual planning sessions
will be developed and implemented.


       Since individual planning sessions are delivered to all students, it is advisable to set up time
ranges, based on grade level, that permit the counselor greater flexibility in completing these sessions. If
counselor/student ratios preclude offering individual planning meetings, small group sessions may be
substituted.
       A sample calendar, with suggested time lines for curriculum and individual planning sessions, is

included in the appendix of this document. School counselors must determine an appropriate schedule for

the implementation of the TCSGCP in their school.




                                                                                                      14
                                    V. ACCOUNTABILITY
       Accountability and evaluation are essential components of the TCSGCP. These components will
be used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the TCSGCP in measurable terms. The data will be used to
justify programming that supports positive outcomes for students.


Reports
       Data will be collected in a manner consistent with professional guidelines as well as state and
Federal laws, rules, policies and standards. The creation and maintenance of records will respect student
confidentiality. Current technology will be employed to make reports organized, clear and useful. The
focus of the reports should be to answer the question, “How are students different as a result of the
program?”


       Reports may be used to support the implementation of new programs, as well as document the
effectiveness of current programming. Short-term reports facilitate immediate program evaluation;
intermediate and long-term reports reflect progress towards benchmarks and overall student outcomes.
Content and format of reports will be consistent with their intended use and will recognize the need to
share information effectively with all stakeholders. Reports also serve to identify professional
development needs and opportunities for school counselors.


   A results report serves as a tool for:
   •   Ensuring the program was carried out as planned
   •   Ensuring every student was served
   •   Ensuring developmentally appropriate materials were used
   •   Documenting the program’s process, perception and results data
   •   Documenting the program’s immediate, intermediate and long range impact
   •   Analyzing the program’s effectiveness
   •   Sharing the program’s successes
   •   Improving the program
   •   Advocating for systemic change in the school system




                                                                                                  15
   The content of results reports for school counseling curriculum may include the following:
       °   The grade level served
       °   Lesson content areas
       °   Curriculum or materials used
       °   Process data, such as the number of lessons presented, and in which domain area
       °   Process data such as the number of students served
       °   Short term perception data, such as pre-post tests of knowledge gained
       °   Intermediate and long term results data, such as the impact on behavior, attendance or
           achievement
       °   Implications of the results for the TCSGCP


Program Review
       The program review is a tool that assists school counselors in the analysis of each element within
each program. The completed review provides a breakdown of component information. This information
helps school counselors define areas which may need enhancement or improvement, and guides future
actions designed to improve student standards results.


       A program review is completed cyclically to determine the following:
       •   Program strengths and areas in need of improvement
       •   Short and long term goals
       •   Items to be addressed in management agreements


       The information derived from program reviews is shared with the administration and with the
advisory committee. The results of a program review will also help determine program goals, any training
that may be needed and action plans for the following cycle.




                                                                                                  16
