School Counselors as Accountability Leaders: Another Call for Action
Sink, Christopher A.
Professional School Counseling, v13 n2 p68-74 Dec 2009
This article discusses the vital leadership role that school counselors have in reaching the profession's accountability standards. According to the school counseling program evaluation literature, this leadership responsibility is explained as it relates to four major evaluation areas commonly associated with comprehensive school counseling programs: program audit, results-based assessment, personnel review, and needs assessment. Sample implementation strategies and instrumentation practices are reviewed as well as recommendations for the future direction of accountability leadership research and best practice.
