Counseling and Guidance Overview
The San Diego Unified School District's Counseling and Guidance Program supports teaching and learning by assuring that all students achieve academic success and develop life skills through the acquisition of academic, career, and personal/social competencies, which will prepare them for meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. 
Credentialed school counselors provide comprehensive school counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention activities through school-wide assemblies and activities, classroom guidance lessons, intentional guidance groups, individual counseling, and collaboration with outside community resources. Counselors also assist students in ensuring they meet high school graduation requirements. The Crisis Response Team provides support to students, families and staff in the event of a crisis, emergency or traumatic situation. Counselors are also responsible for administering violence prevention curriculum and character education programs.
