Guidance Plan

The Babylon Jr/Sr Guidance Plan is designed to be a resource for members of the Babylon Central School District Counseling Department and the Babylon Central School District educational community. The plan supports the overall mission of the School District by promoting student achievement, college and career planning, and personal and social development for every student. Babylon school counselors, using their leadership, advocacy, teaming and collaboration, and data driven decision making skills, will ensure that every student will have access to a quality and equitable education. This plan is aligned with the Common Core Learning Standards, the New York State School Counselor Association’s Model Comprehensive K-12 School Counseling Program, the American School Counselor association National Standards for Students and enhanced with practical ideas for activities and assessments.

It is recognized that the development of any program is a process of continuous improvement. This plan assumes that the use of data as a powerful planning tool makes school counseling programs more effective. A properly implemented program focuses school resources on student achievement and increases collaboration between educational professionals within schools. The Guidance Plan is currently being updated and will be available soon.
