Webcast: Solutions to the Dropout Crisis


Tuesday, September 23, 2008

3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time

Connected Counseling:
Connecting Students to Success

presented by

Kitty Johnson

*Learn about an innovative approach to school counseling for All students.
*Find out how teachers and counselors can become advocates for students, helping them develop more positive attitudes towards school and thus stay in school with goals for the future.

Standards-based high school educational reform movements lead to the creation of the American School Counselors Association Model: A Framework for School Counseling Programs. Saint Paul high school counselors across the district learned the model and created Connected Counseling: A Strategic Plan to Restructure St. Paul's High School Counseling Programs to raise graduation rates for all students.

Connected Counseling means students have connections to caring adults, supportive peers, challenging academic curricula, community partners, and the ability to create a Six Year Plan outlining their four years of high school and two years beyond. This broadcast will introduce you to Connected Counseling.
