Advocacy and Impact: A Comparison of Administrators' Perceptions of the High School Counselor Role
Dodson, Tammy
Professional School Counseling, v12 n6 p480-487 Aug 2009
This article compares administrators' perceptions of the high school counselor role in a Recognized ASCA Model Program (RAMP) versus the perceptions that administrators had of the high school counselor role in counseling departments that had not received the RAMP designation. An analysis of the data revealed that administrators from both RAMP and non-RAMP designated counseling programs had both positive and negative perceptions of the appropriate and inappropriate roles of the school counselor role. The most significant finding in the administrator perceptions was that RAMP administrators viewed their school counselors as having a significant role in collaborating with teachers to present guidance curriculum lessons.
