The School Counselors' Institute is a VIRTUAL two-day training specifically designed to meet the needs of school counselors in implementing a comprehensive school counseling program. We are very excited to bring the expertise of Trish Hatch and her team from Hatching Results to lead school counselors in this interactive and engaging professional development opportunity. School counselors will leave with the tools they need to promote and support the development and implementation of a comprehensive school counseling program that is data driven to meet the needs of all students. Topics will include: MTMDSS, Tier 1 implementation, Tier 2 implementation, data, college and career readiness, mental health, equity, and sharing data with stakeholders.
To register for the School Counselors' Institute, please visit our events listing.
Please note: The School Counselor’s Institute is held independently from the Teachers' Institute and Leading Change Conferences. The 2021 Teachers’ Institute and Leading Change Conference will be held concurrently in the same virtual conference platform. Participants registered for either the Teachers Track or the School Leaders Track will participate in the same Keynote sessions but will attend Breakout Sessions geared toward their target group.
School counselors design and deliver school counseling programs that improve student outcomes. “The ASCA National Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs” outlines the components of a school counseling program that is integral to the school’s academic mission and is created to have a significant positive impact on student achievement, attendance and discipline.
The ASCA National Model guides school counselors in the development of school counseling programs that:
are based on data-informed decision making
are delivered to all students systematically
include a developmentally appropriate curriculum focused on the mindsets and behaviors all students need for postsecondary readiness and success
close achievement and opportunity gaps
result in improved student achievement, attendance and discipline
Explore the ASCA National Model website to learn more about the ASCA National Model, its component parts and how developing a school counseling program based on this framework can improve student achievement.
