Step One: Mission statements

District goals/mission/vision statement:
The Elmwood District goals include: Increase student academic achievement, Operate the
district more efficiently and effectively, Raise hope, trust, and confidence in the Elmwood Local
School District. The Elmwood staff connects students to the power and possibilities of learning.
Campus Mission/Goal:
The mission for the Elementary School is aligned with the District goals. There is awareness and
attention paid to the third grade reading guarantee and the importance of attendance.

Provide a positive educational setting in which each child has the opportunity to develop
academically, emotionally, and physically to the best of his or her ability.
Provide students with a diverse array of learning opportunities.
To inspire, create, and achieve a community of excellence.
To be a school of choice for excellence in education.
As a unified learning community we are dedicated to graduating students who are
lifelong learners and productive citizens in an ever changing society.

Program mission statement:

The Elmwood Elementary School does not have its own counseling department or program. With
that said, a statement can be made that the counseling interns strive to provide collaborative help
to students, teachers, parent, and the school team to ensure that each student has an opportunity
for academic successes. A comprehensive program will be followed based on the
recommendations of the American School Counseling Association in the areas of personal/social,
academic, and career support.
The Elementary does have belief statements that will hold true for the interim counseling

All students can learn if given the opportunity and motivation to apply themselves in a
safe and healthy environment.

Discussion with campus principal: (AYP needs. What was the outcome? Bullying, test scores,
graduation rates, parent involvement)
Personal Notes from Report Card:
Annual Measurable Objectives: low in reading and math for economically disadvantaged.
After a discussion with the principal, no major areas of concern about the AYP, bullying, or
attendance. She has stated she wants the counseling interns to be a part of a school wide behavior
program: PAX. She has asked us to be involved by attending the upcoming training, being a
support to teachers, and trying to follow the program through the school year keeping track of
time teachers are implementing the program games into their classroom.
I have also discussed the topic that there is no data on how many and what types of counseling
referrals are made yearly. We have decided that I will begin to keep track of referrals (both to
counseling interns and the mental health counselor from the CRC). This will offer baseline data
and information as to where improvements could be made in the future.

Step Two: Data What current hard data are you going to impact?
There is no current hard data that I will be impacting. Instead, this years MEASURE will be
aimed at creating data related to counseling referrals. Referrals will be documented by frequency
and type: academic, social, and behavioral. The hope is that this data will serve as a baseline for
future MEASURES that can be used by the counseling program to help impact the schools AYP.

Step Three: Analyze

Baseline: (Where is the data element currently?)

Where do you want the data element to be in a year?
I would like to create data about counseling referrals over the span of the year and offer areas
that could be improved upon for the schools AYP next year.

Step Four: Stakeholders-Unite

Develop an Action Plan School Counselors, as managers of resources, join existing groups of
stakeholders, such as the school improvement team, or bring other stakeholders and resources
into the task of creating and implementing an action plan. Strategies are developed that will
change systems as well as impact individual students and targeted groups of students.
Impacting systems means (1) replicating successful programs and interventions; (2) identifying
barriers that adversely stratify students opportunities to be successful learners; and (3)
developing strategies to: .
strengthen curriculum offerings.
maximize the instructional program.
enhance the school and classroom culture and climate.
provide student academic support systems (safety nets).
inuence course enrollment patterns to widen access to rigorous academics .
involve parents and other critical stakeholders (internal and external to the school).
raise aspirations in students, parents, teachers, the community.
change attitudes and beliefs about students and their abilities to learn

Step Five: Reanalyze, Reect, and Revise

Reect and Revise:
Reanalyze: Reflect on why the stakeholders were successful after the action plan? Did the
strategies work?
Restate the baseline data. Where is the data? Have you been successful or unsuccessful? Revise
the action plan if needed so that you have a positive impact on the data so progress can be made
and you can continue to get better results. Restate the baseline data: Which of the strategies
worked? Data after action plan: Which strategies should be replaced? Added? Impact: Based on
what you have learned, how will you revise the action plan?
Systemic Changes Made:
Whenever you implement a MEASURE you will contribute to systemic change. Each
MEASURE will in some way change a school, home, or community system to enhance student
learning. Capture these systemic changes here and record them on your report card.

Step Six: Educate

Promote and publicize the results of your work. Develop a report card for your own program to
let the internal and external school members know your work is connected to Vision 2010, the
mission of the school and to student success. The School Counseling Program Accountability
