Middle and High School Supplemental School Counseling Program

NOTE: The application due date for this program has passed.


Funding Description

The Middle and High School Supplemental School Counseling Program is a state categorical program contained in the Consolidated Application. Funding supports additional, appropriate counseling services for students in grades seven through twelve at risk of (1) not passing the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) or (2) not accessing the standards curriculum because they are two or more grade levels below standards by the seventh grade. This supplemental funding will be used to increase the access for those students to appropriate counseling services.

Eligibility

Eligible Applicants Local educational agencies
Required Eligibility Criteria School districts and direct-funded charter schools that maintain grades seven through twelve, inclusive, are eligible for these supplemental funds.
Other Eligibility Considerations The current statute specifies that only school districts and direct-funded charter schools are eligible. However, many of the students for whom this program is specifically intended attend schools or programs under the auspices of county offices of education. The California Department of Education is seeking resolution of this issue through subsequent legislation.
