    The mission of the Keyport Public Schools Guidance Department is to promote developmentally appropriate social, emotional, academic and career growth for all students.
    In order to meet all of our goals for each student, the guidance staff will utilize a variety of delivery methods.
    • Guidance Curriculum - Counselors will collaborate with teachers to include instruction in the student competencies included in the counseling program.  This may also include classroom activities directed by the counselors.
    • Student Planning - Counselors will meet with students throughout the year to assist them in planning and managing their own academic, personal/social and career development.
    Services - Students may need to meet with a counselor due to an immediate need or concern.  This may be handled through individual counseling, conflict resolution, group counseling, referrals and consultation.
