The mission of the Pewaukee Public School District’s School Counseling Program is to maximize all students’ abilities to develop strategies that support their academic achievement, self-awareness, interpersonal skills and career awareness.
The Pewaukee Public School District School Counseling Program is based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the Wisconsin Comprehensive School Counseling Model, which integrates academic, career, and personal /social development. The school counseling program reflects the progression of student development from pre-kindergarten through grade 12. It is delivered through a direct service program consisting of the following components:
- School Counseling Curriculum (currently in 4th, 5th and 6th gr. classrooms 8x a year)
- Individual Planning (working with parents and teachers to plan interventions for individual students)
- Responsive Services (short term solution focused counseling for individual or groups of students)
- System Support (variety of activities as determined by the need of what it takes to educate children)
Curriculum topics focus on:
- Academic success skills
- Career Development
- Communication and Social Skills
- Goal Setting
- Safety & Wellness
- Self-Knowledge & Self-Management
Voluntary small groups (8-10 session) that students may self select are held regarding:
1) improving school organization or focus in the classroom
2) family changes that occur that interfere with the ability to concentrate in school
3) other topics as generated by the students during a voluntary sign-up
(Parents are notified of a students desire to participate and asked to give permission)

REMEMBER - The goal for visiting with Mr. Burt is to work through a struggle and then move one. Everyone who is asked to come to a problem solving session must volunteer to do so. When requesting to meet, a student must first describe what they have already done to try to fix the situation.
