School Counselor Accountability: A MEASURE of Student Success 3e BCC
Carolyn B. Stone Carol A. Dahir
School Counselor Accountability: A MEASURE of Student Success provides strategies for understanding, designing and implementing accountability measures as the cornerstone of a comprehensive school counseling program.
What users have to say about MEASURE:
“Unquestionably, MEASURE leads to accountability success in a straightforward manner; to us, it brings accountability alive in the classroom and in the real world.”
~Joy Burnham, Associate Professor, Counselor Education, University of Alabama
“Rising to the challenge of change is a difficult process. The process is slow and often you may feel you are moving backwards instead of forward. Don’t be discouraged! As state school counseling leaders we are in a unique position to advocate and foster this culture of change. By working together as a unified team and using the MEASURE accountability tool, we have the power to reform our profession as well as to positively impact students’ lives. What an exciting time to be a school counselor!”
~Nicole Cobb, Director of School Counseling Tennessee Department of Education
“Research supports the necessity of exposing school counselors in training to models of best practice. Towards these ends, MEASURE can be integrated into the education and training experiences of school counselors as form of knowledge, a developed skills set, and a means for reflective practice. As a counselor educator, it has been my observation that by providing students a variety of experiences with MEASURE over the course of their school counseling program, they are more likely to internalize the value and importance of accountability.”
~Melissa Luke, Assistant Professor and School Counseling Program Coordinator
