“Celebrate School Counseling” is the theme for this year’s National School Counseling Week. The week is sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) and will be celebrated from February 2-6, 2015, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within the school system and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.
According to Governor Sam Brownback, the special week recognizes school counselors who “implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st Century”.
National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. More than 32,000 school counselors nationwide will be participating in the week’s festivities by hosting special events and activities to call attention to the myriad benefits of a comprehensive school counseling program.
