Legislative Update

In the last issue, we mentioned we were going to be working with our law makers to change our title from guidance counselor to school counselor. In order to convince our legislators this is important for them to support, we need data! Please fill out the form below with your honest answers to the questions. Data goes a long way in convincing law makers a change needs to be made!

National School Counseling Week

This year NSCW is February 6th - 10th, 2017. The slogan for NSCW this year is: "School Counseling: Helping Students Realize Their Potential". This week is all about ADVOCATING! It's a great way to showcase the unique ways in which we help students succeed. There are several ways you can participate. See ASCA's National School Counseling Week page by clicking here. If you participate in the photo challenges during the week, please use the hashtags #NSCW17 and #KYNSCW17 so we can share all the wonderful things school counselors in Kentucky are doing!
