Is it a scam?
Historically, counselors began working in schools to provide vocational guidance to those joining the workforce. However, the term "guidance counselor" no longer encompasses the broad scope of work and duties provided by today's school counselors. The role of the school counselor has evolved to become a central and important part of a child’s development and educational career. PCPS is thankful for our School Counselors!
