    • Every student should have access to a premier and equitable educational experience.
    • Every student should graduate from high school prepared for college, other post-secondary education, and/or employment.
    • The effectiveness of school counseling programs should be measurable through SMART goals using process, perception and outcome data.
    • School counseling programs promote and support academic achievement, personal and social development, and career planning for every student.
