My 2015-2016 School Counselor Binder and School Counseling Program

I have been working on my 2015-2016 School Counseling Calendar.  I want to make sure that my year is planned, that I am meeting my counseling goals, and that I can keep organized all that I have to do.  

I start with my counseling goals that I set up with my SC Advisory Committee.  My goals for the school year, are very much like last year, although we have altered them slightly.

My yearly goals are:
  1. Decrease the number of students with greater than 10 absences from 73 students in  the 2014-2015 school year to 50 students in  the 2015-2016 school year.
  2. Decrease the number of discipline referrals for the class of 2022 to CPR from 23 in the 2014-2015 to 15 in 2015-2016.
  3. Decrease the number of students in grade 8 who are failing core courses in marking period 1 from 17 (will need to gather this info--this is last year's number) to 10 in marking period 4 for the 2015-2016 school year.

In addition, I want to make sure that each month I have outreach to parents, students, and staff.  I will use my monthly calendar to keep track and plan for this.

I then have a weekly checklist and weekly calendar that I use to keep track of what I'm doing and need to accomplish for the week.

  I also add pages for a phone log and important contact numbers plus a password keeper.

The best part is, taking my pages to Staples and then having them spiral bound with a plastic cover.  For little money, I have a professional looking binder.

Want one of your own that you can edit and customize?  Go to my TpT store here.  

Am I missing anything?  Let me know.  


  1. I try to be this organized each year and the binder goes kaput. As a district we keep up with the calendar online as well as log entries. I have a phone log directly next to my phone to keep this up to date which is not a problem at all. All in one binder, I don't know if this would work for me. Thanks for sharing. I love everything you do!

  2. Hi Carol! I enjoy your blog. I have a question. Do you find that there is more of a significant benefit to doing the Minute Meetings one on one? I find that when I take 1 homeroom at a time to the Computer Lab at the beginning of the year to do my Needs Assessment, I get the same information and I'm able to circulate and touch base with each kid. What are your thoughts?

  3. One more question! I do the "Backpacks of Love" program with my kids. On Friday afternoons before dismissal, I hand out a bag of food/snacks that are provided by a local organization. Problem: Some remember to come, but many homeless and/or financially strained kids can not always be consistent. How do you get these kids down to your office to get the backpacks (I see you do this program, too?)--Many times at the end of the day on Fridays, I"m in the middle of a crisis and have to set my timer to remind me to grab these kids! Help!

  4. Done. :-)

  5. This calendar is just great. I definitely should try to do the same with my kids. I guess your blog might get into the assignmentmountain review as an example of excellent blog. Thanks for the article!

  6. Editing is the process that editors apply when they proofread a document. This is an extensive process in which spelling, syntax, grammar, and flow of content is checked and corrected. See more cheap resume writing service

  7. Hi Carol - Is this template still available? I did not see it in your store. Thank!
