Professional School Counselors(PSC) collaborate with many stakeholders to ensure a quality school counseling program.
Administrators provide support for the organization, development and implementation… encourage counselor and teacher cooperation… recognizes importance of [each participant’s] role in implementing the school counseling program.
PSCs must learn how to discuss student development and provide data to support their assertions (Hardesty & Dillard, 1994).
At Walker Freshman High School we have gone to great lengths to ensure the PSC is directly involved in a leadership role and a collaborative partnership with the administrative team.
School Counselor Magazine (Nov/Dec 2006), Covington & Grant provided a Top Ten List of why PSCs should be involved in leadership activities.
