                                 Philosophy and Rationale:
        · All Children are unique and should be respected with dignity.
        · Every student can succeed at high levels.
        · Learning is a lifelong process.
        · Fostering a positive self-image is the collaborative effort of the school, home and community leading to responsible and productive citizenship.
        · The needs and diversity of all students are addressed at all educational levels.
        · Every student needs appropriate personal and social skills to achieve optimum benefits from the educational program.
        · Comprehensive guidance counseling is a developmentally appropriate program rather than support services.
        · The guidance program is an integral part of the overall educational program and serves as a critical link to the instructional program and the community.
        · The program provides developmental opportunities and experiences as it addresses student development areas: learning to live, learning to learn, and learning to work.
