Fir Ridge Counseling Philosophy


The school counselors of Fir Ridge Campus believe: Meeting with all students regularly ensures personal and academic planning and success. Connecting with parents and guardians promotes students succeed. Assisting students in getting his or her basic needs met, prepares students to engage in the classroom. Connecting students to resources supports his or her development as students leave our school and enter the community. Building positive relationships between our students and the community facilitates our students positive contribution to society/community. We believe the School Counseling Program should:
Be planned and coordinated by state-certified school counselors in consultation with other representatives of the school and community. Engage students in classroom, group and/or individual activities to enhance student learning. Provide academic, career, personal/social, and community development for every student. Use data to drive the program development and evaluation, and actively monitor student results. We believe all Fir Ridge counselors should:
Adhere to the American School Counselor Association Ethical Standards for School Counselors and the standards set forth by the State of Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission.

Participate in professional development essential to maintain a quality school counseling program. Use a comprehensive management system to examine the existing school data and evaluate for improvement.
