Vision Statement

The School Counselors at ECHS believe:

  • All students should have equal access to counseling services and resources that are sensitive to their individual needs.
  • All students, from varying backgrounds and beliefs can be successful given adequate support.
  • All students have the right to learn in a safe and respectful environment.
  • All students have access to a full-time, state-certified, master's-degree-level school counselor to deliver the counseling program.

Our comprehensive School Counseling Program should:

  • Recognize the needs of their student population.

  • Use data to drive program development and evaluation.
  • Include cooperative relationship with students, families, school personnel and community resources.

All counselors at ECHS:

  • Abide by the professional school counseling ethics as advocated by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA)
  • Participate in the professional development activities essential to maintain a quality school counseling program.
