My impressions of the role and responsibilities of guidance counselors have improved. After reading the websites, my allegiance and respect for guidance counselor’s role and responsibilities have increased by two hundred percent. Counselors have enormous role and responsibilities. Not only are counselors focusing on academics, personal/ social development, confidentiality and collaboration with parents, teachers, administrators, to name a few, but are accountable for student’s success. School/guidance counselors develop and implement data and participate in continuous program evaluation activities. Checks and balances are necessary to assess the outcome of student’s success which I failed to mention in Blog 1. As stated in the article, ‘’school counselors analyze outcome data to guide future action and improve future results of all students’’. Guidance counselors must adhere to and/or enhance comprehensive school counseling programs that promote students’ success. Guidance counselors are vital to the success of students, all students and the collaboration of those involved. I have always tried to assist counselors when needed, but after reading the websites, I will now volunteer my assistance to counselors.
