National School Counseling Week is celebrated each year during the first full week of February. The goal is to focus public attention on the unique contribution of school counselors within school systems in the United States. National School Counseling Week, sponsored by ASCA (American School Counselor Association), highlights the tremendous impact that school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

The American School Counselor Association supports school counselors' efforts to help students focus on academic, social/emotional and career development so they will achieve success in school and will be prepared to lead fulfilling lives as responsible members of society. Meeting the needs of all students is critical to school success. Ensuring a safe environment and being considerate of the mental well-being of students requires awareness and sensitivity from all staff members.

CCPS School Counselors provide support and education to students, staff and the community. Please take a look at some editions of our "Counselor Chronicles" to learn of initiatives that school counseling offices around the county are undertaking.
