Counseling Services 

The Cedar Rapids Community School District (CRCSD) provides a comprehensive school counseling program that is developmental, proactive, preventative, and systemic in nature. It is sequential, clearly defined, accountable, and integral to the educational program of the district. It assists students in acquiring and using life-long learning skills. The school counseling program employs strategies to enhance academic development, provide career awareness and employment readiness, and encourages self-awareness and interpersonal communication skills. The purpose of the program is to impart life success skills to ALL students. The counseling program strives to meet the National Standards of the American School Counseling Association, which categorizes the counseling responsibilities into three focus areas: academic, career and personal/social. Students’ development in these areas is fostered through six delivery systems: consulting, counselor programming, responsive services, student planning, program management and advocacy.
