ROOSTER SPRINGS ELEMENTARY EARNS CREST AWARD
For the third consecutive year, Rooster Springs Elementary and its counselors Karey Carroll and Kimberlee Guerrero have garnered the prestigious CREST (Counselors Reinforcing Excellence for Students in Texas) award by the Texas School Counselor Association (TSCA) for the 2022-23 school year.
CREST is a continuous improvement program that gives school counselors an opportunity to demonstrate effective communication and a commitment to obtaining results. CREST helps counselors to evaluate their counseling programs, promote their programs to stakeholders in their district, demonstrate the effectiveness of their guidance and counseling programs through empirical means, and implement the Texas and national models for school counseling programs.
CREST looks at the counseling program in five categories:
Introduction to the School and the Role of the Professional School Counselor
Program Implementation Cycle
Four Service Delivery Components
Each counseling team prepares an online submission that highlights the five categories and communicates what the counseling program is doing to help students succeed. Each submission is evaluated and scored by members of the TSCA CREST evaluation team comprised of Texas school counselors.
