USD 457

Counselors at Garden City Public Schools will be celebrating National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), from February 1 – 5, 2021.  The week will help to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do.  National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career. 

The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.  School counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master’s degree in school counseling.  The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total educational program. 

More than 100,000 school counselors nationwide will be participating in the week’s festivities. Many schools will be hosting special events and activities to call attention to the countless benefits of a comprehensive school counseling program.
