Schulz, Lisa L.
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v17 n1 p6-14 2010
Professional school counselors must clearly establish and articulate the purpose and goals of their school counseling program and its relationship to student achievement in order to become integral participants in the school reform movement. By aligning Georgia's Performance Standards and the ASCA National Standards, counselors can realize measurable gains in student achievement as well as demonstrate program effectiveness. Designed to assist Georgia's school counselors in developing programming which aligns counseling standards with academic standards, this article includes examples of standards alignment at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Suggestions for program delivery, teacher collaboration, promoting cultural responsive practices, and assessment of program effectiveness are discussed.
