The Maine Department of Education has launched a new sub-site for professional school counselors, who serve a vital role in maximizing student success. K-12 school counselors should visit the School Counseling home page to view relevant information, tools and resources.
On the website, a summary of recent legislation offers school counselors an overview of laws that impact their work. The Guidelines section provides guidance for developing a comprehensive K-12 program, retaining records, and preventing student dropout. This section also gives school counselors information for developing a standards-based school counseling approach.
