The KSCA Principal Advocate Award is to recognize administrators who have made significant contributions to the development and implementation of school counseling programs.
This year, the Kansas School Counselor Association would like to recognize the following Kansas Principals during National Educational Bosses' Week for demonstrating their belief in and support of school counseling programs that positively impact students on a daily basis. Each Principal will be recognized at the 2015 KSDE Fall Counseling Conference in Emporia, KS, on November 5th.
School Counselor Summer Camp is right around the corner June 2nd through June 3rd in Manhattan, KS. Register TODAY at this link:

Dear KSCA Members;
I believe school counselors are the ALL STARS in every school! As a counselor educator, I get excited with every group of graduate students who aspire to be school counselors. This year I assume the role of KSCA President and I am honored to be associated with a dedicated Board. We will continue to focus on three distinct areas.
1. Membership: KSCA is the state professional organization dedicated solely to school counseling. As the largest division of KCA, KSCA provides many benefits to members across the state. These include professional growth opportunities, resources, networking, and a strong voice for school counseling. Please consider adding KSCA to your professional memberships. If you are already a member of KCA, you can add KSCA for only $35. Access the online registration through the “Membership” link at the side panel of this page. To join ASCA along with KSCA, go to ASCA’s website “schoolcounselor.org”.
2. Communication: KSCA provides a quarterly newsletter through a partnership with ASCA. The newsletter includes articles written by KSCA Board members as well as professionals across the United States. In addition to the newsletter, regular updates are sent to KSCA members regarding legislative updates, professional development opportunities and other key issues for school counselors.
3. 3. Advocacy: KSCA has a lobbyist, Bernie Koch, who keeps us informed on legislative activity throughout the year. The Government Relations committee sends these lobby reports to members throughout the Legislative session.
There are exciting opportunities for KSCA this year! I would like to urge all Kansas school counselors to join KSCA and receive the added benefits of professional development, relevant quarterly newsletters, and regular legislative updates. If you are interested in serving on a KSCA committee, please let me know (email@example.com). We need everyone’s involvement to meet our goals. I hope to see you at Fall Conference in November, KCA conference in March and the K-State/KSDE Summer Camp next June.
