Generally, students are assigned to counselors by alphabet. Counselors are generalists having a wide breadth of experience and knowledge covering all aspects of the high school experience. Students remain with the same counselor throughout high school. The counselor's role at Santa Rosa High is to deliver services to students, parents, teachers and administrators that promote maximum student success in the educational setting. In this role, the primary demand upon the counselor's time shall be made by the student. While the focus of the counseling relationship is upon the individual, the counselor recognizes the need to consider the student as a member of the school, the home, and the community. Further, counseling services are guaranteed all students since it is assumed that all students need educational and personal guidance to get the most out of school.
The counselor is a professional consultant who engages in research and curriculum development; most of all s/he is instrumental in the process of human development. A number of students have significant adjustment problems. Though the counseling can be therapeutic, the counselor does not practice psychotherapy. The counselor seeks other professional aid for a counselee who exhibits symptoms of severe maladjustment.
The basic duty of the counselor is to counsel with students regarding their special career, educational, personal and social development. Counselors are expected to use current information and to maintain and improve their skills by attendance at both district and professional organization sponsored conferences and workshops.
