School Counseling Week


This week we honor our beloved school counselor – Shawna Myers! This program would not be possible without Shawna’s dedication and care. We appreciate you Shawna!

What Does a School Counselor Do?

Counselors are licensed educators who address students’ academic, career, and social/emotional development needs by implementing and executing a counseling program aiming for student success, according to ASCA. They can work in elementary, middle, or high schools or in district supervisory roles.

In particular, school counselors can benefit students of color and low-income students. Research links high student-to-counselor ratios in low-income schools with better outcomes, including improved attendance, fewer disciplinary incidents, and higher graduation rates.
