National School Counseling Week is Feb. 6-10
Feb. 3, 2012—National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated the week of Feb. 6-10, 2012, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems.
The theme of this year’s Counseling Week is “School Counselors: Helping Students Be Brilliant.”
The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who are a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.
“Our counselors serve as a bridge between school and home to ensure that all students find success both in the school and in their future,” said Darlene Davenport, Director of Guidance and Counseling. “They work very diligently to provide programs that meet the needs of their students and we celebrate our CFISD counselors as they continue to help make a difference in the lives of their students.”
CFISD has 78 high school, 51 middle school, 74 elementary school and five elementary supplemental outreach counselors. The district also employs three special campus counselors and 14 youth service specialists/social workers that serve all grade levels.
