COUNSELING MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Carter Elementary counseling program is to provide a comprehensive service that addresses the students' social-emotional, academic, and college/career needs. The counselors will help provide a safe, caring, family-friendly environment that will help all students strive to be the best that they can be.
School Counseling Vision Statement:
As a result of Carter Elementary School's Counseling Program, all students will achieve at their highest potential and will reach their goals through various teaching methods, academic, social/emotional, and career support. Students will leave the elementary level prepared for middle school, and high school graduates will leave the Knox Co. school system ready for college or career.
We believe that ALL students can learn and achieve academic greatness when encouraged and nurtured in a respectful environment. We believe that nurturing ALL students' social and emotional well-being will encourage academic development and future success.
We believe the school counselor’s role is to provide a data-driven, developmental counseling program to meet the needs of ALL students through a standard based school counseling curriculum, individual student planning, responsive services, and system support.
The school counseling program will promote the following: an understanding of and respect of self and others; problem-solving and decision-making; emotional-management skills; skills for learning; and the influence of academic habits on career success.
