The elementary school counselor is responsible for providing a well-designed counseling program that supports and guides students in their academic, personal and spiritual growth. In order to maintain knowledge of current best practices in counseling and guidance, the guidance counselor is expected to avail himself/herself of necessary professional development opportunities and/or continuing education. The professional development opportunities need approval by his/her immediate supervisor.
