The week provides recognition to counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.

RUSD school counselors are actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests and talents, to connect with their inner strength that helps students overcome the challenges and obstacles they have in life to help them become better humans. Counselors focus on positive ways to enhance students’ social/personal, educational, and career development by working with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where student can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic and optimistic aspirations for themselves.  Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators with a masters degree in counseling.
