What is a Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling Program (CGCP) ?
A comprehensive school counseling program is developmental in nature and promotes the learning process. It is systematic, sequential, clearly defined, and accountable. School Counselors and School Social Workers are Master’s level professionals with special certification. Counselors, in partnership with families, other educators, and the community, help students develop important lifelong abilities to be successful in life.

The professional responsibility of School Counselors and School Social Workers is to respect the right to privacy of those with whom they enter into a counseling relationship. Professional school counselors must keep abreast of and adhere to all laws, policies, and ethical standards pertaining to confidentiality. The counselor must not abridge this confidentiality except when there is a reasonable suspicion of danger to the student and/or other persons.
