Building a College-bound Culture Within the School
This module, developed for practicing professional school counselors and pre-service school counselors, includes four sessions: introduction to the counselor’s role in student career and academic planning; creating a college-going culture; understanding and working with diverse populations; and communicating effectively with diverse student populations. These sessions are designed for school counselors to develop an understanding of their role in developing a college-going mission for all students, particularly students in poverty or facing other barriers in postsecondary planning. Additionally the sessions help counselors develop approaches for communicating and working with high-poverty students and diverse populations to remove barriers to high aspirations and achievement.
This course will be offered for 2 Professional Development Credit through Boise State University, Northwest Nazarene University, and University of Idaho. Registration information for PD credit will be available in the LMS once you have started the course.
Fall course will run from September 12 to October 21.
