Celebrate School Counselors!
The first week of February is a special week to honor school counselors and highlight the tremendous impact school counselors have in guiding students to achieve success and plan for their future! Marana district counselors promote and enhance student achievement and provide each student with the support, resources, and skills necessary to become productive and responsible adults.
MUSD is proud to be one of the few school districts in the county to provide Master level full-time counselors in all schools. Counselors make a measurable impact in every student’s life and are an integral part of each school’s total educational program.
Counselors provide services in three main areas: Academic, Social/Emotional, and Career/Life Planning. Through large and small group instruction, presentations, activities, and individual advising and counseling, counselors work closely with students, staff, and parents. The school counseling program follows the ASCA National Model, based on the ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors for Student Success.
