Mission statement

It is the mission of Duval County school counselors to deliver a multi-layered, comprehensive, and accountable guidance program in which equity, access, and academic success for ALL students is the focus.

Our comprehensive school counseling programs are designed to meet the needs of every student and include the following services:

Classroom guidance lessons help students understand themselves and others. Through classroom guidance, school counselors help students develop peer relationships; effective social, decision-making, and study skills; effective communications, conflict resolution, and coping strategies; and more.

Individual student planning helps students set goals, establish academic and career plans, understand their own strengths and weaknesses, and prepare for the transition to the next stage of their life.

Responsive services assist students with particular needs such as adjusting to a new school, coping with grief following a crisis, and dealing with substance abuse or other risky behaviors. These services are provided through individual and small group counseling, peer facilitation and consultation, and referrals to professionals trained in mental health, welfare, and other specialties.

System support enhances school climate and relationships among members of the school community. School counselors coordinate parent outreach services, community support services, and consultations with other faculty and staff.
