Responsive Services

The purpose of the responsive services component is to work with students whose personal circumstances, concerns, or problems are threatening to interfere with or are interfering with their healthy academic, career, and personal/social development.

Specific issues some students face include academic success, career choice, child abuse, cultural diversity, dropping out of school, educational choices, family loss, relationships, school attendance, stress, substance abuse, and suicide.
As a result, there is continuing need for individual counseling, small group counseling, consultation, and referral. The responsive services component also supports the activities in the guidance curriculum and individual planning components.
Parent/guardian involvement with and participation in the activities of this component are critical in helping students overcome barriers to their personal/social, academic and career development achievement. Parent/guardian involvement may include referring their children for assistance, working with professional school counselors to identify issues of concern, giving permission for needed services, and providing help in resolving issues.
