National Model for School Counseling Programs
Developed by ASCA, the National Model for School Counseling Programs connects school counseling programs with current educational reform movements. The National Model reflects a comprehensive approach to program foundation, delivery, management and accountability. The model provides the mechanism with which school counselors and school counseling teams will design, coordinate, implement, manage and evaluate their programs for students' success. It provides a framework for the program components, the school counselor's role in implementation and the underlying philosophies of leadership, advocacy and systemic change.
