Image celebrating National School Counselors Appreciation WeekFayetteville – National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated from February 6–10, 2017, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

“The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition to those who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, which are a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st Century,” said Cumberland County Schools’ Counseling Coordinator Kristy Curran.

In a proclamation signed by the Cumberland County Board of Education Chair, Curran cited school counselors for (1) being actively engaged in helping students examine their abilities, strengths, interests, and talents; (2) working in a partnership with parents as they encounter the challenges of rearing children in today’s world; (3) focusing on positive ways to enhance students’ social/personal, educational, and career development; and (4) working with teachers and other educators to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set healthy, realistic, and optimistic aspirations for themselves. Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators with a master’s degree in guidance and counseling. The combination of their training and experience makes them an integral part of the total educational program.
