Under the third edition the foundation section of the Model includes program focus, student competencies, and professional competencies. You actually begin by developing (if you have not already done so) a list of beliefs the school counseling team thinks are important. There is an exercise in the book on page 22 that may help. It is important to develop a comprehensive list of beliefs about effective school counseling. This gets submitted as part of this component. You also need to submit a copy of your district and school vision statement if they have one, if not you should state that in the narrative write up for this section. The narrative is 300-750 words describing the process you went through to to develop a vision statement for the counseling program that aligns with the school and district vision statements and communicates what want to see in the future for the school community related to student achievement and other outcomes. They are talking about what you want students to be doing five to fifteen years away. The counselor can write this or solicit input from the school counseling advisory council. The narrative must explain how the beliefs must influence the vision statement. Allow yourself time to go through several drafts of the vision statement. It should be bold and inspiring which I think means it can't be too long.
