From my experiences with guidance I see that they are a crucial part of our school. The guidance department at our school have many duties. One job of theirs is to "guide" the students in the right direction to graduate. This takes alot of coordination between the teachers, admin., and the counselors. They make sure that the students are in the right courses they need and in the proper order to keep them on the right path that the student chooses to take for graduation. The guidance department also deals with personal issues with students and familes. If a student is struggling emotionally about something or their grades are slipping or even having family problems they are there to help. The guidance department deals with issues that may have legalities tied to them also. Testing such as ASVAB and others are orchestrated through guidance also. College preparations are handled and assisted through guidance to students. Guidance can assist students in applying for scholarships, military entrance, and college placements. Schedules are run through guidance prior to students receiving them. The guidance office prepares them and makes sure class numbers are correct and that the students are in classes that they are supposed to have. Guidance is like the human resource department at your schools. My guidance department at my school has helped me tremendously over the last two years.
