Professional School Counselors (PSCs) are equipped and poised with a unique skill set of knowledge and experiences. Oftentimes, in schools, PSCs are the lone person(s) with knowledge of guidance curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, and systems support. These four areas of knowledge exist in crisis intervention plans, processes and supports, assistance with mental and behavioral health concerns, individual and group counseling, guidance and advisory lessons, evaluation, post-secondary readiness, CCMR (college, career, military readiness), etc. Based on this unique skill set, CEU requirements of PSCs also differ from those of principals, superintendents and teachers. The Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs (5th Edition) - Texas Education Code [TEC] §§33.005-33.007 includes a specific focus on PSC leadership and advocacy. The Leadership WISE Academy is an opportunity for PSC Leaders to gain the additional tools needed to lead their teams and district.
