National School Counseling Week 2021, “School Counselors: All in for All Students,” sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated from Feb. 1–5, 2021, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
“School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, postsecondary options and social/emotional skills,” said Jill Cook, ASCA executive director. “School counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators. School counselors are integral to student success.”
Many schools will celebrate to call attention to the countless benefits of comprehensive school counseling programs.
Parents or community members with specific questions or concerns about school counseling programs should contact the school counselors at their child’s school.
District leaders encourage families to take a moment to thank their local school counselor(s).
Follow the #NSCW21 to see how school counselors across the country are celebrating.
