Counseling Services

 
The school counseling program is a part of Campbell's total school program.  The program has four components, based on the American School Counselor Association standards. Individual student services:  this work is done with the students and their families to help all students develop personal goals and future plans. Guidance lessons: developmental classroom instruction which can help all students in the areas of personal/social, academic and career development. Responsive services: meeting immediate students' needs through crisis counseling, referral and follow up. 
 
System support:  activities targeted at maintaining and enhancing the educational environment and school climate.   
    
The counseling program benefits parents by:  helping them to understand their children's progress in school, helping them to develop realistic goals based on their children's age, adapting the ASSETS guidelines to the family's standards, identifying  students with special abilities or needs, providing assistance to identify other professionals within the school system or within Arlington county for support.
 
The counseling program  benefits the school staff by: promoting a positive school climate,  coordinating services with teachers, psychologists, social workers, administrators, gathering and providing resources,  collaboration on student studies and  IAT meetings, conferencing with parents, review and interpretation of school records,  responding to the needs of a multicultural community of learners and their families.
