What is the School Counselor’s Job?

The school counselor implements the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance program which addresses competencies in the following areas:

Confidentiality
Confidentiality is perhaps the most important job of the counselor. It means that anything said in a counseling session is kept between the counselor and the student. HOWEVER, in order to keep students safe, there are 3 important exceptions to this rule:
· If someone is hurting/has hurt the student
· If the student is hurting/has hurt someone else
· If the student is hurting/has hurt him or herself
