Do you ever feel overwhelmed about what your priority is in your building? Do you ever feel that you are responsible for all these students, but don't have enough time in the year to help each and every one?
Conduct a school-wide needs assessment with the students!! This will also help teachers see who needs special social-emotional help verses others. I have provided a one-sheet needs assessment along with how to calculate your results in EXCEL. Ideally, you should do this in the beginning, and at the end of the year to see if changes have been made. This type of data will also help you with what student will benefit best in whatever small groups you run throughout the year.
Give to teacher. Ask them to go over with students and read along with them as they select their answer. As the school counselor, get all feedback from each student. Then begin to fill in the result sheet provided. You will get great and easy data for you school counseling program!
