"The Utah Model for College and Career Readiness School Counseling Program Model empowers school counselors to place themselves as educational leaders in their school systems and establish a foundation for school improvement. School counselors are partners and collaborators in school improvement and advocates of social justice. The Utah College and Career Readiness School Counseling Program Model is based on standards and the use of data, transforming the school counselor forward in a growth mindset. Today’s school counselors emphasize accountability, social justice, and systemic change. School counselors value the importance of working with some students one on one, but then look deeply within school programs systemically to eliminate barriers to student success. This growth mindset requires leadership skills. Leadership skills require vision, collaboration, the willingness to be accountable, and the capability to see the systemic process. Implementation of the Utah College and Career Readiness School Counseling Program Model assures that every student has the opportunity for access, attainment, and achievement. "
