School Counselor Advocacy and Owning the Turf

In a previous post I discussed the importance of school counselors advocating for the work that we do as well as beginning to define our role, both for ourselves and for our stakeholders.

The following two videos are from the National Office of School Counselor Advocacy (NOSCA).  The first is an overview of the the Counselors at a Crossroads survey that shares what it is that school counselors see as their ideal mission.

The second video is from the current Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, and discusses the importance of school counselors Owning the Turf of college and career readiness within our schools.


Both of these videos can be shared with stakeholders--administration, parents, teachers, students, and community members--as a way to help them see the value in what do as school counselors and to further help to define our mission of academic success with skills that will lead to college and career success.
