The professional school counselor of Barcelona Elementary School believes:

  • All students have a right to be treated as unique individuals deserving of dignity and respect
  • Diversity should be recognized, appreciated, and celebrated.
  • All students have a right to a safe and positive educational environment conducive to learning and growth.
  • Every student is capable of outstanding achievement in academic, social/emotional, and career domains when his or her educational pursuits are supported by parents/guardians, teachers, staff, and community members.
  • Collaboration among educational stakeholders is crucial for achievement of school, counseling program, and student goals.
  • The comprehensive school counseling program is essential to the progressive functioning of the school.
  • The Barcelona community is passionate about providing students with tools for success.

  • Be preventative in focus.
  • Be developmentally-appropriate by nature.
  • Be planned and coordinated by the school counselor, administration, and other educational stakeholders.

  • Be driven by data for intentional development and objective evaluation.
  • Be evaluated by the counselor, administration, and other educational stakeholders on the degree to which the program met specified goals and standards.

And that the counselor at Barcelona Elementary School will:
