Individual Planning consist of activities that help all students plan, monitor and manage their own learning as well as their personal and career development. Within this component, students evaluate their educational, occupational and personal goals. The activities in this component are Counselor planned and directed. These activities are generally delivered either on an individual basis or by working in small groups. Individual planning is implemented through:
- Counselors working with students analyzing and evaluating students’ abilities, interests, skills, and achievement. Counselors and students work to develop immediate and long-range plans for school success.
- Counselors working with students to use personal-social, educational, and career information to develop educational and occupational goals. Counselors include students, parents, and school staff in planning a program that meets the individual needs of the student.
Counselors assist students in making the transition from school to school and accessing additional educational support as needed.

- Career Awareness
- Goal Setting
