Guidance
Counselors – The district guidance Counselors provide counseling
services to the students in each of our buildings. One of the
primary responsibilities of our counselors is to provide
academic counseling for our students. They provide direction
to students in relation to their academic choices as well as providing
students guidance in identifying career possibilities through the
career cruising curriculum. Guidance Counselors work
with parents to ensure that all students have supports to be
successful in their academics.

District
Nurses – The School District employs school nurses in each of the
buildings and provides nursing services for the non-public schools
within our district boundaries. Along with providing medical
attention to students on a daily basis, our school nurses work
collaboratively with local health agencies to provide additional
services such as flu shots and dental sealants to our students and
staff.

Mental
Health Specialists – The School District’s commitment to ensuring
students are not only challenged academically but emotionally and
socially is evident in the employment of our Mental Health Specialists.
These individuals provide another layer of counseling to students who
have larger needs than can be handled through our school counselors.
Students meet with the Mental Health Specialists in small groups or
individually based by need in each of the school buildings in the
district.

The Coatesville Area School District is committed to providing every
student with the education they deserve. In an effort to
understand the strengths and needs of each student, the Coatesville
Area School District has devised a comprehensive assessment schedule to
provide teachers with data needed to focus their
instruction. CASD requires students to take a variety of tests
throughout the course of the school year that measure a variety of
different achievement areas. Students are
given summative, formative, diagnostic, and benchmark
assessments. The results of these assessments allow the
teachers to have a clear picture of the needs of their students and
provide them with the necessary information to tailor their instruction
to the needs of all of the students in the Coatesville Area School
District. To learn more about our assessments, please click on
district assessments under the curriculum section of our webpage.
