​FEBRUARY 26 MEETING 
BRINGS NEW INFO. RE: SCHOOL 
COUNSELING PROGRAMS

​The model  for guiding what school counseling programs look like has changed!  Reflecting many statutory and changes to best practices, the new Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs looks very different.  The program will highlight the changes, the development process for these changes, as well as the program implementation cycle for delivering a state of the art school counseling program.

Our speaker, Scott Kessel, is the Director of Student Services & Safety for the Aledo ISD.  Among other things, implementation of sound school counseling programs is under his watch.  Scott has also been been adjunct faculty at Texas Christian University for the last nine years, teaching school counseling courses and practicum coursework. In the summer of 2015 Scott was appointed to a task force commissioned by TEA to re-write the Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs.
