School Counseling

Areas of Support

School counselor support services and professional development are provided by Heartland AEA through multiple opportunities:

  • A school counseling listserve is maintained to communicate resources and supports.
  • School counselors participate in a needs assessment every two years to determine professional learning needs and every effort is made to match professional learning to those needs.
  • Most importantly, counselors are encouraged to meet on an ongoing basis throughout the year to study their current plans, analyze data and align curriculum.
  • Counselor Academy is now available as a self-directed course. Check out AEA Learning Online to take this for credit or to increase your learning around the ASCA National Model, 4th¬†Edition.

To be included on the school counseling listserve, contact Sue Schirmer.
