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”.
