Utah Model for Comprehensive Counseling and Guidance Program

The counseling department follows the Utah Model for Comprehensive Counseling and Guidance Program (hereafter, CCGP). As stated on the CCGP website as part of the Utah State Office of Education (http://schools.utah.gov/cte/guidance.html):

The philosophy of the CCGP, and a school counseling program is:

  • Comprehensive in scope
  • Preventative in design
  • Developmental in nature
  • Student centered
  • Conducted in collaboration
  • Driven by data
  • An integral part of the total education program

The Delivery components of the CCG Program are:


School Guidance Curriculum:

provides instructional support for the development of skills that are based on specific recognized content. Students are taught skills related to the development of healthy personal characteristics, values, and attitudes deemed important for healthy productive living.


Individual Student Planning:

is a process that includes activities to assist students and their parents or guardians in planning, monitoring, and managing the student’s learning as well as his or her personal, educational, and career goals. Every school district has adopted policies to support the SEP/SEOP process as an essential element of the student’s education.


Responsive Services:

meet the immediate concerns and needs of students, usually with a prevention focus, e.g., programs for dropout prevention, student assistance teams, peer leadership, and drug and alcohol prevention.


System Support:

focuses on program development, implementation, and management, and connects the guidance program to existing family and community support and to school improvement and student achievement.
