Mission Statement

The mission of the School Counseling program at EHS is to create and support an ethical, nurturing and challenging learning environment for all students.  As professional school counselors we provide academic, career, and personal/social development leading to high academic achievement and successful post high school pursuits for every student....every day. 

Philosophy

We believe...

 

Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. 

 

Every student is a unique individual who will learn and process information differently and, given proper support and encouragement, will achieve and be successful. 

 

All students have the right to a safe and supportive learning environment.

 

In setting high academic and personal/social standards for all students.

 

School Counselors provide Academic, Career and Personal/Social Development and serve as an advocate for all students.

 

In collaborating with administration, teachers and parents to support student achievement. 

 

We have a role in educational reform; that is our responsibility to address barriers to student achievement and success.

 

Our behavior and words impact student learning and motivation; that as a school community we must insist on student's achievement.

 

 

The California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Education, Section 852, states, "A parent or guardian may submit to the school a written request to excuse his or her child from any or all parts of any test pursuant to Education Code Section 60640.  A school district and its employees may discuss the Standardized Testing and Reporting Program with parents and may inform parents of the availability of exemption under Education Code 60615.  However, the school district and its employees shall not solicit or encourage any written exemption request on behalf of any child or group of children."
