The mission of the Brodhead School District's School Counseling Program is to meet the needs of all students by helping them learn about themselves, learn about the world around them and make meaningful connections between the two.
The Brodhead School District Comprehensive School Counseling Program is based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs, and the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model, which integrates academic, career, and personal/social development.
Research indicates that the benefits of a developmental school counseling program improve:
An elementary school counseling program aims to impact student's self-esteem through intervention and prevention services. Students develop socially and emotionally, as well as physically and cognitively. A comprehensive program can address the vital process skills students must have in the workplace tomorrow, as well as intervene in problems that interfere with learning today.
A balanced, comprehensive program consists of coordination, prevention, and intervention techniques. A counselor provides academic support to the classroom teacher to ensure that each individual student learns as much as possible. A counselor coordinates with teachers, parents, and administrators to provide an optimal learning environment for all students.
