There is an old saying that if you fail to plan, you have planned to fail. An effective school counselor will plan as much of the school year as possible before school even starts. The counselor must first take into consideration any school activities, meetings, days off, etc., and mark those on the calendar. Then from that part the counselor can determine what programs, activities and services are going to be provided to students. This is determined from the data of the school and the needs of the student body. Counselors use an annual calendar to show the priorities of the program. Some of these include classroom lessons, back-to-school night, open house, student/parent/teacher meeting days, standardized test dates, career or college nights, and evening activities. Counselors will also need a weekly calendar where a detailed plan of the counselor’s activities is recorded such as classroom lessons, group and individual counseling times, meetings with students, collaboration and advocacy, data analysis, and committee and fair- share responsibilities. Calendars should be made available for students, parents or guardians, and all staff or other persons. This can be done by posting it where everyone can see it, sending it home in a newsletter and also posting it on the school webpage that includes a page for the counseling office.
