Role of the School Counselor
Parents, the press, administrators and the general public often wonder just what it is that school counselors do on a daily basis. Gone are the days of school counselors sitting in their office simply handing out college applications, making schedule changes for students who want to drop a class or meeting with the troublemakers in the school. Today's school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. Learn moreabout the school counselor's role.

The Need for School Counselors
School counselors are an important part of the educational leadership team and provide valuable assistance to students regardless of whether they work in an elementary school or middle school, high school or beyond.

Why Middle/Jr. High School Counselors?
Why Secondary School Counselors?
Why Post-secondary School Counselors? 
Why School Counseling Directors/Coordinators?

Appropriate/Inappropriate School Counseling Program Activities
School counselors should spend most of their time in direct service to and contact with students. School counselors' duties are focused on the overall delivery of the total program through guidance curiculum, individual student planning and responsive services. A small amount of their time is devoted to indirect services called system support. Schools should eliminate or reassign certain inappropriate program tasks, if possible, so school counselors can focus on the prevention needs of their programs.

TALLAHASSEE – The Florida Department of Education (DOE) today launched a host of resources geared toward communicating directly with Florida’s parents about public education. The purpose of this effort is to help parents understand Florida’s assessment and accountability system, increased standards, and how these changes will help prepare our K-12 students for college, career, and life.

“Florida’s parents and guardians provide invaluable support to our students and the department is committed to ensuring they have the most accurate user-friendly information and resources available,” said Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson. “We are asking more from our students and teachers than we ever have, and parents play a critical role in Florida’s path forward.”

New resources for parents include an FCAT 2.0 Call Center, Florida’s Path to Success website, DOE Parent Portal by Novachi, and Just for Parents e-mail address. See below for details about these resources.

Beginning today, DOE experts will be available to answer parent questions from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Parents may call 866-507-1109, toll-free, to ask questions about FCAT, recent changes to Florida’s accountability system, and how this impacts students and teachers.

Visit the Florida’s Path to Success website to find out more information about our transition to tougher standards and higher expectations. The website features a letter from Commissioner Robinson, timelines about Florida’s education system, a question and answer page, and video from a Florida public school parent.

In partnership with Novachi, the department has launched the DOE Parent Portal. This public forum is designed for parents to ask questions and voice ideas at the state level. The portal features a parent blog, discussion board, and announcements page with more education resources coming soon. Parents may logon for access to this free user-friendly site.

This e-mail address is especially for Florida’s parents to get answers, voice opinions and share ideas with the department.
