School Counselors Roundtable
A collaborative offering from CASDA and the Capital District Counselors Association (CDCA)
School counselors serve an essential role in helping students maximize educational opportunities, develop and engage interests and plan for a future beyond graduation. Relationships and engagement with students and their families form the foundation of this work. Covid-19 and the subsequent virtual and hybrid schooling models it has necessitated constitute significant obstacles for counselors seeking to connect with students and families. The School Counselors Roundtable, a collaborative offering from CASDA and the Capital District Counselors Association (CDCA), is a professional learning community that will focus on strategies for developing and sustaining engagement with students and families during this uncertain period. We will build upon themes identified in the fall meetings and continue to provide a space for counselors to share effective practices that meet the academic and social emotional needs of their students. The spring session will seek to integrate the expertise and perspective of higher education counselors in order to build bridges to ensure support across the P-20 Continuum. Additionally, the roundtable will address the topic of coordination of support services for students in relation to the following needs: academic, social/emotional, risk/crisis, and mental health.
