Reach ALL students and prove how critical your counseling program is!
For school counselors, using data effectively doesn’t have to be a burden. Data can make the difference for today’s embattled school counseling programs, and this insightful book shows how to collect and manage it.
School counseling scholar and advocate Dr. Trish Hatch describes how K–12 counselors can replace "random acts of guidance" with intentional, well-timed interventions, based on student data. Aligned with current research and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) standards, this essential resource includes a complete set of tools and templates for data collection, action-planning and reporting. Readers will learn how to
- Develop a robust counseling curriculum that supports the Common Core Standards and drop-out prevention
- Measure progress through pre- and post-assessments
- Deliver compelling reports that demonstrate your program’s impact
This well-timed book is designed to help school counseling programs make the most of limited resources and measurably demonstrate how their work improves school performance.
"Trish Hatch provides extensive examples of how school counselors can enhance student achievement and well-being through the use of data. Not only does she provide useful examples and a framework from which counselors can explore data, she helps counselors understand some of the very common barriers to change within school systems."

"As practicing school counselors, we rarely find a text that tells us what to do, why we should do it, and how to do it. Priceless!"
