Our young people face a number of challenges. The expectation of ever-higher academic proficiency and societal factors may create obstacles to learning for some of our students. The mission of the Eufaula Elementary School Counseling Program is to provide a support system to students, parents and staff as they strive to meet these growing demands on students.
The EES Counseling Program addresses student need in a number of areas including: academic achievement, crisis management, and personal growth and development, just to name a few. Following are the Counseling Program’s guidance curriculum domains designed to address the desired student competencies.
