systemic support.

other educators, individuals, and groups of the internal and
external community to deliver the components of the
school counseling program.



Managing Resources means extending the school
counselor program by bringing in human resources such as
parents, students, teachers, administrators, community

Getting Organized
Four phases are suggested in organizing the school
counseling program:
1. In the planning phase, set program goals based on the
student needs that were identified when priorities were set.
2. In the designing phase strategies needed to achieve the
goals of the school counseling program are identified.
3. The counselor focuses on implementing the program.
4. The program is evaluated to see if it is an accountable,
data-driven program. Data is collected on the efficacy of
program components and analyzed to assess how the
program contributed to desired student outcomes.

Management of Resources


The school counseling program is changing from a direct
service delivery to a coordination of resources.



The comprehensive school counseling program brings in
resources such as parents, students, teachers, technology,
school-based administrators, and the business community
so that the program has a better chance of impacting all
students.



A school counselor who can determine the extent and
variety of resource brokering can increase the resources of
the school.

Barriers to partnerships usually occur in the areas of
time, space, and personnel.



Lack of interpersonal skills prevents educators from
establishing and maintaining collaborative efforts.



External members are harder to manage.
Rules and regulations of agencies, businesses, and
civic organizations can severely limit the work that
can be accomplished.
