What does a school counselor do?

School counselors design and deliver school counseling programs that improve a range of student learning and behavioral outcomes (Carey & Dimmitt, 2012). These programs are comprehensive in scope, preventive in design and developmental in nature. “The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs” (ASCA, 2019a) outlines the components of a school counseling program. The ASCA National Model brings school counselors together with one vision and one voice, which creates unity and focus toward improving student achievement and supporting student development. - American School Counselor Association Position Statement

 RAMP

Wadsworth Middle School is a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) School.  The RAMP designation, awarded for aligning with the criteria in the ASCA National Model, recognizes schools that are committed to delivering a comprehensive, data-driven school counseling program and an exemplary educational environment.  To receive this award, the school counselor program shows that the school counselors are school leaders, compassionate student advocates, collaborators with key stakeholders, and create systemic change.

 

The best way to reach your child’s school counselor is by email.  School Counselors do not maintain 24-hour access to email accounts. During school hours, we will do our best to respond as soon as possible.  We are here to support your child.

If you are faced with an emergency situation, here are some options on how to handle it.

In the event of a counseling emergency, call The Crisis Center at (330) 725-9195.

You can also Text the keyword "4hope" to 741741 and expect a reply from a trained Crisis Counselor within five minutes. Your message is confidential, anonymous, and secure. Or call the The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.

For immediate safety concerns regarding yourself or others, call the local police department at (330) 334-1511.

 

If you have concerns about another child’s safety, try to contact that child’s parent.  If you cannot get in contact with them and it is during school hours, you can contact me. If it is not during school hours and you cannot contact parents, you must contact the police to do a well-child check.   

 

Here is our list of county agencies, including counseling practices if your child is in need of ongoing mental health support.  Many of these offer teletherapy.
