National School Counseling Week as an Advocacy Opportunity
Flowers, balloons, handmade cards and other appreciation gifts are wonderful ways to celebrate National School Counseling Week; however, sharing student results, annual calendars, use-of-time data and school counselors’ roles/responsibilities may provide a bigger bang for your buck as you help others understand the role you play and the impact your program has on student achievement. Learn how to use this week in February as catalyst for advocating for your role and your comprehensive school counseling program. Download accompanying handout.
