6 Boulder Valley School District Comprehensive School Counseling Curriculum Introduction Background The Boulder Valley School District Board of Education adopted Standards and Benchmarks for Comprehensive School Counseling in the Winter of The District Counseling Curriculum Committee immediately began work on the development of the Grade Level Learning Results that would provide the necessary framework for implementing the approved standards and benchmarks in the district middle and high schools. The Committee determined, at that time, that the development of Grade Level Learning Results for the elementary schools could be postponed until resources were made available to support elementary counseling programs. In 2007, the district received a grant that provided the resources to support an elementary school counseling program in selected elementary schools. This three-year grant has supported the development of the Grade Level Learning Results for elementary level. While this curriculum only be implemented in the schools that have elementary counselors, it provides a framework for the future when other elementary schools may receive the resources needed to support elementary counseling. It also outlines the student learnings that be possible if adequate counseling staffs are provided to all elementary schools. District counselors had several opportunities to review and provide input into the development of the Grade Level Learning Results contained in this proposed Comprehensive School Counseling Plan. This feedback was solicited with the following guidelines and understandings: The primary purpose of the Comprehensive School Counseling Plan is to support the academic achievement of all students through developing the academic, career, and social/emotional skills and knowledge all students need to succeed in school. The identified grade level is the point at which all students should have achieved a specific learning result. Some schools might combine learning results in such a way that students might acquire the skills or knowledge at an earlier grade level. Counselors were asked to evaluate the proposed curriculum learning results in terms of student need and developmental appropriateness. As individual schools implement the new curriculum, once adopted, they should choose the learning results for their implementation focus that would have the greatest payoff for the achievement of the Standards and Benchmarks for Comprehensive School Counseling in their school. The proposed curriculum, once adopted, would be open to fine tuning in the next few years without going through the entire curriculum development and revision process. 6

7 The curriculum document is organized into five major components: The BVSD Standards and Benchmarks for Comprehensive School Counseling Elementary School Learning Results Middle Level Learning Results High School Learning Results Comprehensive School Counseling Curriculum Continuum These five components comprise the Comprehensive School Counseling Plan which focuses on achievement of the counseling standards and benchmarks within the context of the kindergarten through twelfth grade curriculum continuum. BVSD counselors have begun and continue to work together to identify activities, learning materials, and assessments that support the implementation of the Grade Level Learning Results district-wide. This effort include programs and activities that are already in practice, new evidence-based activities, or a collaboration of activities that have proven to be successful in a variety of BVSD schools. In adopting this curriculum, the Boulder Valley School District places itself in the forefront of the implementation of exemplary school counseling programs based upon The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs. As District schools and their counseling staffs implement this curriculum, they are continuing in the tradition of excellence that characterizes Boulder Valley. 7

8 Boulder Valley School District Standards & Benchmarks For Comprehensive School Counseling Introduction Background In April of 2005 the Boulder Valley School District counselors and secondary school administrators met to review and discuss the implications for BVSD of The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs. The results of that meeting were several action plans, including one requesting support for the development of standards and curriculum for a Comprehensive School Counseling model in Boulder Valley. In response to this recommendation, the District allocated funds for the development of these standards and curriculum. A District Counselors Standards Committee was formed to oversee the process and began working on a comprehensive counseling model in the summer of During the school year, under the leadership of this committee, the BVSD Standards and Benchmarks for Comprehensive School Counseling were developed. After input from school counselors and administrators, the standards were presented to the Board of Education on April 25, These standards became the framework within which the curriculum for the Boulder Valley School District Comprehensive School Counseling program was developed. School counseling programs have long been a component of elementary and secondary school programs in the United States. However, over the decades, school counseling programs have often lacked clarity and agreement of purpose. School counselors have found themselves in that uncertain terrain between administrative and teacher/classroom functions. This has resulted in each school developing its own model for counseling programs, resulting in wide variation of opportunity and support for students. The momentum for standards-based education in BVSD has elicited an endeavor to provide clarity of content and common elements to address this variation with regards to counseling. While it is acknowledged that an entire school is responsible for promoting social/emotional health and strong academic achievement with their entire student body, the BVSD Standards and Benchmarks for Comprehensive School Counseling are intended to provide this clarity particularly for all Boulder Valley counseling programs. The BVSD Standards and Benchmarks for Comprehensive School Counseling are based on several models designed to clarify the mission and vision of educational programs. In developing these standards, the committee focused on applying The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs to the Strategic Initiatives of the Boulder Valley School District and the Vision of the New Century Graduate as well as its accompanying Profile of the New Century Graduate. Additionally, the BVSD Comprehensive School Counseling Standards reflect the goals of the Boulder Valley School District School Climate Survey. 8

9 The BVSD Comprehensive School Counseling Standards are designed to promote the Boulder Valley School District Strategic Initiatives. Two initiatives are the focus of the BVSD Comprehensive School Counseling Standards. These are: Maximize learning and achievement Value diversity and promote understanding. The vision of the Boulder Valley School District, as articulated in the Profile of the New Century Graduate, is: To graduate students in the New Century who have the knowledge, skills and personal characteristics that prepare them for the challenges they encounter as adults. In addition to skills and knowledge in reading, math, writing, and speaking, New Century Graduates possess a multicultural and global perspective, including bilingual competencies. New Century Graduates personal characteristics include respect for others, initiative, creativity, ethical behavior and other characteristics that enable them to become contributing members of society. The BVSD Comprehensive School Counseling Standards are designed to promote realization of this vision paying particular attention to the skills and knowledge and personal characteristics that are the appropriate domain of school counseling. The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs was published in School districts across the country have been reviewing it since, using it as a major influence in the evaluation and modification of their school counseling programs. As stated in the Preface to the document: The ASCA National Model s uggests t hat school counselors can be more accountable when they follow a universal pl an that can be implem ented from... school to school. The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs is written to reflect a comprehens ive approa ch to program foundation, deliv ery, management and acc ountability.... It not only answers the ques tion, What do school counselors do? but requires us to respond to the question, How are students different as a result of what we do?. (American School Couns elor Association: 2003). Paul Meyers from the California Department of Education is quoted as saying, For school counseling programs, this means moving from services to programs and from measuring processes to measuring results. (American School Counselor Association: 2003). School counseling programs are encouraged to incorporate several characteristics. These characteristics are comprehensive in scope, preventative in design, developmental in nature, integral to the total educational program, collaborative with other staff, and driven by data. Being comprehensive in scope means that the program focus on what all students should know, understand, and be able to do in three critical domain areas: academic, career, and personal/social. Therefore, the BVSD Standards and Benchmarks for Comprehensive School Counseling are organized into these three domains. 9

10 Vision and Beliefs In response to the ASCA National Model and the Profile of the New Century Graduate, the BVSD counselors developed a vision statement for counseling in the Boulder Valley schools. The vision for Boulder Valley School District Counselors is to optimize school success for all students in the academic, career, and personal/social domains. This be accomplished through a Comprehensive School Counseling Program. Therefore, a counselor s role be: To provide curriculum in the areas of academic success, career development, and life skills To teach, promote, and model the New Century Graduate skills To advocate for all students To promote district and school goals such as achievement, cultural diversity, equity, and school safety. The counselors of Boulder Valley strongly believe that all students can succeed when given access to developmentally appropriate knowledge, tools, and skills that are presented and practiced in a variety of ways and in a safe learning environment. The school counseling program supports valuing of diversity by reaching out to all students, recognizing that each student s background and experience lend to different perspectives on learning. The program supports the maximization of learning by helping all students see themselves as effective learners and supporting them in acquiring the skills needed to accomplish that task. Evaluation and Accountability Development of standards and benchmarks is one component in developing an outstanding school counseling program for all of the students in Boulder Valley. Another important component is evaluation and continuous improvement. The school counseling programs be held accountable for these stated outcomes by evaluating relevant data indicating how students are different as a result of a Comprehensive School Counseling program. However, effective delivery of the Comprehensive School Counseling Standards depends on quality staff. In developing the stated outcomes for which they be held accountable, school counselors had the following assumptions: The school counseling program be planned and coordinated by school counseling staff. The school counseling program be evaluated on the stated standards and benchmarks. The school counseling program be managed by state licensed school counselors with Master s Degrees. An ongoing in-service program for counseling focused on the skills and knowledge required to achieve the BVSD Comprehensive School Counseling Standards is necessary to maintain quality programs. All school counselors abide by the professional ethics of school counseling advocated by the American School Counselors Association. The BVSD Comprehensive School Counseling Standards guide the school counselors evaluation by better defining the content knowledge they should have and the skills essential to their area of expertise. The school counselor and the administrator develop an agreement on the standards and benchmarks that be the focus of the evaluation based on their school s needs. 10

11 Realization of this program also require the support and collaboration of administrators and teachers at each of the schools, articulation within feeder systems, the understanding and support of parents, and, as with all programs in the District, adequate resource support, including staff and dedicated time. Additionally, attention must be given to the delivery system that addresses how the program be delivered: the guidance curriculum itself, individual student planning, responsive services, and systems support. The degree to which all students achieve the results outlined in these standards and benchmarks depend on these factors. 11
