Principals' Perceptions of School Counselor Roles and Satisfaction with School Counseling Services
Beesley, Denise; Frey, Lisa L.
Journal of School Counseling, v4 n14 2006
This study surveyed principals (N = 303) across the nation about their perceptions of school counselor roles and satisfaction with counseling services. Results from this exploratory study revealed that principals reported overall satisfaction with counseling services, although satisfaction varied across levels (elementary, middle school/junior high, high school) and service area. Suggestions are offered by principals for improving counseling services. Implications for school counselor training, opportunities for collaborative school counselor-principal partnerships, and the need for additional research are also presented. (Contains 3 tables.)
