School Counseling Research

State Trend Conclusions, 2010:

  • School Counselors are at risk and need to become more vocal at all levels, from building to district to statewide, regarding the critical role of school counseling.
  • The AVID Program is a national trend based on research and evidence which we should continue to explore and educate ourselves on.
  • A 1:2340 ratio of school counselors to students in charter schools, therefore largely underrepresented.
  • An increase in number of virtual online schools in the state which we need to continue to track.
  • School Counselors are underprepared for the significant mental health issues facing students.
