Comprehensive school counseling programs are integral to the school's educational environment. They produce measurable, positive results for student achievement and behavior.

Professional school counselors plan and facilitate the delivery of school counseling programs, in collaboration with school administrators, other professional educators, and community members.

Sponsored by the Wisconsin School Counselor Association (WSCA) and American School Counselor Association (ASCA), the week of February 6 -10, 2017, will highlight the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

Close to 2,000 school counselors across Wisconsin will be participating in the week's festivities.
