SPS School Counseling Handbook 2022

The Stamford Public Schools School Counseling framework developed by the school counseling staff, with the help of teachers, administrators, students, parents and community members, is an integral part of the educational process and addresses the academic, career, and social-emotional needs of all students at the secondary level. The framework is modeled after the 2020 Connecticut Comprehensive School Counseling Framework, which is aligned to student standards: ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors (2014), The 12 Career Ready Practices (National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education), Collaboration for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)’s five core competencies (2017), and the Next Generation Accountability System (Connecticut State Department of Education, 2015). The Stamford Public Schools framework is collaborative in nature and emphasizes a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) approach to delivering services to students and families in a systematic, equitable way.
