Texas Comprehensive Developmental
The Aldine ISD counseling department follows the Texas Comprehensive developmental Guidance and counseling program which is an integral part of the total educational program. It provides a systematic, planned approach for helping all students acquire and apply basic life skills by making optimal use of special knowledge and skills of school counselors.
This program is based on four components, which are as follows:
Guidance Curriculum – the purpose of the guidance curriculum is to help students acquire age-appropriate knowledge and skills within the scope of the following content areas: self confidence, development, motivation to achieve, decision making, goal setting, planning, problem solving skills, interpersonal effectiveness, communication skills, cross-cultural effectiveness and responsible behavior.
Responsive Services – the purpose of the responsive services component is to intervene on behalf of those students whose immediate personal concerns or problems put their continued personal-social, career and/or educational development at risk.
Individual Planning – the purpose of the individual planning system is to guide all students as they plan, monitor, and manage their own educational career and personal social development.
System Support – this component describes services and management activities which indirectly benefit students.
In addition to following the Texas Comprehensive Developmental Guidance and Counseling Program Model, the role of the school counselor is:
The elementary/intermediate school counselor provides academic and social counseling promoting healthy relationships with peers. The counselor at this level is key in assisting students with identifying their own feelings as well as help students adjust to school.
Middle School Counselor
The middle school counselor provides counseling to help students with academic, social and emotional issues and concerns. The counselor at this level is key to preparing students for high school.
High School Counselor
The high school counselor is key to preparing students for post high school graduation, as well as college and career awareness. Education plans facilitate the success of students during their high school years.
