School counselors are strategically positioned to help students in developing strategies to deal with educational, personal, and social challenges that may interfere with the educational process. To respond to the challenges of the DoDEA Strategic Plan, DoDEA is implementing a Competency-Based Counseling Program (CBCP) under the authority of DS 2946.1 in all schools. To meet the needs of all students today and tomorrow, the CBCP provides a balance of direct and indirect services and activities.
Due to the unique challenges faced by military families, particularly during this time of war, the Department of Defense is providing professional licensed counseling staff to provide non-medical counseling services to Service members and their families and children.
The CYB-MFLCs are available to provide non-medical support to faculty, staff, parents, and children for issues amenable to short-term problem resolution such as school adjustment issues, deployment and reunion adjustments, and parent-child communications. The school is very excited to offer the Military and Family Life Counseling program; a confidential program which is offered at no cost.
If you have any questions regarding this new support offering, feel free to contact our school counselor.
