This article describes a middle school counseling department's journey and commitment to use data to seek more effective and efficient ways to provide comprehensive school counseling services to its diverse student population. Specifically, the study details the process used to design focused accountability questions that measured the effectiveness of anti-bullying and harassment strategies. As a result, the school counselors began to routinely and systemically track and use data to transform their counseling services. They were able to clearly measure how and if students were different as a result of school counseling services. (Contains 2 figures.)
