The Forsyth County School System has aligned the work of the counseling and guidance program to the Georgia Student Competencies for School Counseling. The Georgia Student Competencies for School Counseling reflect the expectations for all students to achieve.
- School Counseling Curriculum - guidance lessons or activities to promote knowledge, attitudes and skills in three content areas: academic achievement, career development, and personal/social growth. The lessons include classroom guidance, group activities, and parent workshops and instruction.
- Individual Student Planning - activities designed to assist students to establish personal goals and develop future plans, which include appraisals and individual or small group advisement.
- Responsive Services - activities that meet students' immediate needs and concerns, such as consultation, individual and small group counseling, crisis counseling, referrals, and peer facilitation.
- System Support - activities that enhance the school counseling program and support the school. The activities include professional development, consultation and collaboration, and program management and operations.
