Curriculum action plans are lessons and activities related to goals. Essential elements of the curriculum action plan include the grade level, topic of the lesson, what subject or class the lesson will be presented from, the ASCA Domain, Standard and Competency, list of curriculum and materials, the projected start and end dates, projected number of students affected (process data), type of surveys or assessments to be used (perception data), achievement, attendance and/or behavior data to be collected (outcome data), and the contact person. The small group action plan contains the following information: the designated counselor, the ASCA Domain, Standard and Student Competency, outline of group sessions to be
delivered, resources needed, projected number of students affected (process data), type of surveys to be used (perception data), achievement, attendance and/or behavior data (outcome data), and projected start and end date. The closing-the-gap action plan contains the following information: the designated counselor, the ASCA Domain, Standard and Student Competency, the type of activities to be delivered and in what matter, resources needed, projected number of students affected (process data), type of surveys (perception data), achievement, attendance and/or behavior data to be collected (outcome data), and projected start and end dates. Student discusses the purpose of annual, monthly, and weekly school counselor calendar and attaches a sample of a one-month (any month) calendar depicting the roles and functions of the school counselor. We all know that planning is important and required in the school system. Any great school counselor will plan as much of the school year as possible before school begins. The counselor must take into consideration any school activities, meetings, days off, etc., and mark those on the calendar. After going through the days, 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 capacity. Counselors use an annual calendar to show the priorities of the program. 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 need a weekly calendar with a full plan of the counselor’s activities. This calendar should include plans that include classroom lessons, group and
individual counseling times, meetings with students, collaboration and advocacy, data analysis, and committee and fair-share responsibilities. Calendars should have available times for students, parents or guardians, and all staff or other persons. This should be available for everyone to see it. You can also send it home in a newsletter and publish it on the school webpage that includes a page for the counselor’s suite.
