2005 Idaho Code - 33-1212 — ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELORS

                                  TITLE  33
                                  EDUCATION
                                  CHAPTER 12
                                   TEACHERS
    33-1212.  ELEMENTARY SCHOOL COUNSELORS. In recognition of the diverse and
complicated demands upon students, their families and the public school
system, the legislature finds that the counseling offered at the elementary
school level should be flexible and responsive. For purposes of elementary
counselor services, a counselor shall be defined as an individual who meets
the requirements of an approved program of graduate study in school guidance
and counseling from a college or university approved by the Idaho state board
of education and who meets the requirements of rules adopted by the board, or
an individual licensed as provided by chapter 32, title 54, Idaho Code, as a
certified social worker and who meets the requirements of the state board of
education.
    The state board of education shall adopt rules to implement the provisions
of this section, and shall specifically provide that certified social workers
meet the requirement for elementary school counselors. A local school district
may request a waiver from the state board of education of the
counselor/counseling requirements, provided that data is submitted to and
annually approved by the state department of education to substantiate that
the intent of the board's rules in these areas is being met by an alternative
program model.
