Program Activities

To accomplish these goals, the Warrensburg R-VI Comprehensive School Counseling Program is an integral part of the District’s total educational program.  The Program is developmental and includes sequential activities in our elementary, middle, and high schools.

Counselors work with all students, parents, teachers, administrators, and the community through a balanced Program of direct and indirect services.  Large and small group structured learning units provide systematic instruction for all students at all levels.  Counselors may plan with teachers and then teach, team-teach, or assist in teaching these coordinated units in classrooms or in other large group settings. The Counseling Curriculum is taught at all levels.

Individual planning activities are provided to assist all students.  Activities are initiated in the upper elementary grades and are continued and expanded in the middle and high school years. Individual, small group, personal, and crisis counseling are available to all students.  

Consultation services for parents, teachers, and administrators concerning student behavior and academic progress are provided.  Referral to other professionals in the district or to agencies and institutions outside of the district are made as required or requested.  Counselors support the overall District’s educational program through general consultation activities and committee work.  Counselors also support their own program through management and research activities, community outreach, business and industry visitation, and professional development.
