The Connecticut Comprehensive School Counseling Program provides an important resource to Connecticut's school districts in their mission to prepare students to meet high academic standards and to become productive and contributing members of society in the 21st century. This new document represents a model that helps to prepare students for success in school, at work, in the community and in their personal relationships. Goals and competencies have been developed in the areas of personal/social, career and academic development. The curriculum integrates skills and competencies from four important sources: The American School Counselor Association's National Standards for School Counseling Programs, the Connecticut School Counselor Associations goals, the National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee competencies and Connecticut's Common Core of Learning. By articulating what all students need to know and be able to do in these important areas, and by infusing these skills into the core academic mission of the school in a planned, sequential and developmentally appropriate way, students, schools and communities benefit. It is hoped that this document will be used throughout Connecticut as a model for developing comprehensive school counseling programs. (Contains 50 references and 10 appendixes.) (GCP)
