School Counseling Advisory Council In order for our School Counseling Program to be comprehensive in nature, it is required that we incorporate a School Counseling Advisory Council to provide support, offer advice, review present activities, and encourage new activities to meet the goals of our school counseling program. I will be asking various teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community stakeholders to become a part of our School Counseling Advisory Council in the very near future.
Thank You! I look forward to working with you as we Set The Course For Student Success …….... To Finish Strong!!!
