    The Fort Smith School District school counseling program belief and mission statements define the purpose and the guiding principles for managing and implementing a school counseling program and support system for all students.


    School counseling program goals and objectives will be reviewed and modified 
    each year to establish the priorities and direction for school counseling and support services provided to students in grades K-12.


    Three broad domains of student development will guide the school counseling program:  Academic, Career, and Social/Emotional.


    ASCA’s National Model, professional competencies, ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors, ethical standards, position statements and Arkansas Act 190-The School Counseling Improvement Act of 2019 will guide the school counselors’ program, practice, and professionalism within the Fort Smith School District.
