School Counselors' Role in Dropout Prevention and Credit Recovery
Tromski-Klingshirn, Donna; Miura, Yoko
Journal of School Counseling, v15 n4 2017
This article introduces credit recovery (CR) programs to school counseling. Traditionally the school counselors' role in CR has been limited to referring students who are, or who have, failed courses. Based on our own findings from a study of a large Midwest high school (N = 2,000) CR program, we make specific recommendations for school counselors to advocate for, and intervene with, failing students. Further, we propose a new instructional leadership role for school counselors within the instructional leadership team (ILT) to lead credit recovery efforts within the schools.
