School Counselor Advocacy Letter

The School Counselor Advocacy Letter was created with counselors and is addressed to teachers, school leaders, and other staff. The goal of the letter is to open a conversation about the areas in which counselors can be valuable team members in the changing 21st century learning environment. With a greater emphasis on college and career readiness, school communities can utilize a counselor’s deep expertise in the academic, personal, and social development needs of all students, potentially leading to improved student success.

A letter like this can be especially useful in times of school community transition. Counselors can adapt this letter as they see fit. Please note: The letter is written in the first person and is meant to take on the tone of an “open letter”.
