How are students different as a result of the School Counseling Program?
"Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there."
- Will Rogers
We began the implementation of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model during the 2007-08 School Year. A needs assessment was conducted and analyzed to get input from all stakeholder groups: staff, parents, and students. An advisory committee was formed and meets quarterly to help build the program. Evaluation of the various components of the program is ongoing. All classroom units taught by the counselor in grades 2-5 were evaluated using pre and post tests. Small groups were similarly evaluated. The Career Cafe inititave is assessed by the staff, presenters, and students. As the year progresses results reports are produced and shared with the principal and advisory committee. Feedback is always welcome from stakeholders!
