Marana Unified School District employs Master level, full-time school counselors at each school. Our school counselors work with all students on their academic, personal/social, and career development needs in classrooms, small groups and individual settings. The school counseling program promotes student achievement. School counselors do not provide mental health screenings or mental health treatment.
The MUSD School Counseling program is an integral part of the total educational system and is available to all students.
The MUSD Comprehensive School Counseling Program follows the American School Counselor Association National Model (ASCA).
The principle goals of the School Counseling Program are divided into three categories:
- Social Emotional
- Career/Life Planning
All Marana Unified School District students will demonstrate educational competencies to successfully function in and contribute to society.
All Marana Unified School District students will demonstrate competencies in effective interpersonal communication and in recognizing the contributions of self and others.
Career/Life Planning Goals
All Marana Unified School District students will develop a personal vision of their career path and a plan for achieving their goals.
School Counseling is unique in that it is the only program within the K-12 school system that is able to provide for the total development (academic, social/emotional, and career) of each student. This Comprehensive Program provides each student with the support and experiences necessary to become productive and responsible citizens.
The Marana Unified School District is committed to a K-12 Comprehensive School Counseling Program. The ASCA National Model has expanded the role of the Marana Unified School District professional school counselor. The result has been a vastly improved program that is developmental, organized, articulated and accountable.
