Tenth Grade Counseling

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

Tenth Grade Counseling is a state categorical program contained in the Consolidated Application. It is designed to ensure that every student, upon reaching age sixteen or prior to the end of grade ten, receives a review of academic progress and counseling related to educational options. The intent is to provide a checkpoint for assessing student progress toward meeting graduation requirements and to broaden the educational and career options for students. Students who do not progress satisfactorily toward graduation or are not motivated toward education and career goals appropriate to their ability receive priority for counseling.

Other LEAs are encouraged to consider these funds as an opportunity to strengthen the academic portion of a comprehensive guidance and counseling program for students. A comprehensive program should focus attention on personal, social, and career goals as well as the academic needs of students. Results of comprehensive programs should be measured and reported on the Student Personnel Accountability Report Card.
