Our Mission and Functions

The Bayless High School Counseling Program is a comprehensive program that follows the Missouri Comprehensive Guidance Model.

It is developmental by design and addresses the needs of all students by facilitating their academic, personal/social and career development. The program is delivered through four components:

1. Guidance Curriculum

In Advisory classes, classroom lessons, individual counseling, and group counseling sessions, students explore different subjects in three major areas:

  • Knowledge of self and others
  • Academic Development
  • Career Planning and Exploration

2. Individual Planning

Students learn about graduation requirements, personal and career development; and develop a  five-year plan. Counselors monitor students' academic progress and will recommend appropriate programs to meet their needs.

3. Responsive Services

Counselors, School Psychologists, and Social Workers address issues like substance abuse, truancy, academic issues, family loss, relationships, and similar topics, through both individual and group counseling. Consultation and/or referral information to community resources is also available.

4. System Support

Counselors collaborate with their colleagues through Professional Development, Community Outreach, Advisory Committees, Social Worker services, Student Intervention Teams, Special School District and many others.
