School Counseling Program
Freeman's school counseling program follows the American School Counselor Association Model (ASCA) National Model for school counseling in following WA state standards. There are four aspects to the model: Define, Assess, Deliver, and Manage. The reasoning behind an ASCA model is so all services are delivered to all students systematically. This includes a developmentally appropriate curriculum focused on students' mindsets and behaviors for postsecondary readiness and success and close achievement and opportunity gaps. This results in improved student achievement, attendance, and discipline.
Define: Defined student standards and professional standards
Manage: Design and implementation of the ASCA Model
Deliver: Services and activities that are directly or indirectly delivered to students
Assess: How the program is regularly checking for effectiveness, informed improvements, and results
As Freeman School Counselors, we provide a safe environment for all students to experience meaningful, rigorous learning opportunities including academic, social-emotional, and career & college readiness that allow them to dream and develop into capable, confident, and ethical members of our community.
All students have the opportunities and skills to succeed in post-secondary choices.
