Counselors



In speaking with Jodi Kaufman, USBE Health and Physical Education Specialist, we decided this information needed to be sent directly to school counselors. Currently, the Utah Core Standards for Health Education are being revised and out for public comment. The online survey is open until January 30, 2019. If you have more to say than the survey allows please email Jodi<mailto:Jodi.Kaufman at schools.utah.gov> directly and she can bring your thoughts to the committee when they make revisions next month. You will see the draft in two different formats. First, by grade. This is how the standards will look when completed and approved. But also a version that is organized by strand that may be more helpful for counselors.  It is anticipated that counselors will be more focused on the first two strands (Health Foundations and Protective Factors of Healthy Self and Mental Health).



Highlights:

  1.  Added strand - Health Foundations and Protective Factors of Healthy Self. This strand covers protective factors and coping strategies. Key topics throughout the standards (scaffolding through grades) are goal setting, communication, decision making, kindness, relationship building, conflict resolution, personal boundaries, positive self-talk, locus of control, personal values and beliefs, and resiliency.
  2.  Vertical alignment of standards in each grade. Rather than repeating each standard, there are less each grade but they build on each other.
  3.  Complete revision of mental health and substance abuse prevention strands. Both have focus on prevention, behaviors, skills, and seeking interventions/medical care when needed for self or others. *note all standards are revised but this area likely has more direct impact on school counselors.
  4.  Added standards for K-2. Standards currently begin in grade 3. *note Board rule requires Health Education K-6.
The DRAFT Health Education Core Standards can be also found on the Health Education<https://schools.utah.gov/curr/health?mid=908&tid=6> web page.
