Enhancing the Principal-School Counselor Relationship: Toolkit
College Board Advocacy & Policy Center
The College Board, NASSP and ASCA believe that the principal-counselor relationship is a dynamic and organic relationship that evolves over time in response to the ever-changing needs of a school. The goal of an effective principal-counselor relationship is to use the strength of the relationship to collaboratively lead school reform efforts to increase achievement for all students. The desired outcome of an effective principal-counselor relationship is to raise achievement levels for all students and ensure equity in educational outcomes. The tools provided in this toolkit are designed to help school counselors and school principals analyze and enhance key areas of their working relationship with the overall goal of increasing student achievement. The toolkit is organized in four sections: (1) Communications; (2) Trust/Respect; (3) Leadership; and (4) Collaborative Planning. These tools allow principals, school counselors and teams to: (1) Analyze the current status of key aspects of the principal-counselor relationship for each individual and school; (2) Develop ways of more effectively and closely working together as a team in an atmosphere in which all team members feel able to participate in open and honest communication; and (3) Improve student achievement by eliminating barriers among staff members that inhibit their effectiveness.
