School Counselor Accountability: A MEASURE of Student Success provides strategies for understanding, designing and implementing accountability measures as the cornerstone of a comprehensive school counseling program.
This practical book provides school counselors, counselor educators, graduate students and school administrators with the knowledge and skills to use data informed practice to connect school counseling programs to school improvement. School counselors learn how to lead, advocate, and collaborate with colleagues for the ultimate goal of improving student achievement and student success in school. MEASURE is an action research model that serves as a supplemental text for school counseling and administration courses.
The book shows how to design and implement accountable programs and how to measure and report results. MEASURE is a tool that school counselors can use to align their work with the accountability requirements of state and national standards such as No Child Left Behind.
"The information is presented in a way that will help the students think differently about accountability... The framework provided by the MEASURE model serves as a recipe for achieving success." -Phyllis Hallberg, Florida International University
"This gives life to the accountability concept now required in the school counseling profession... The key strength of this work is the presentation of a concrete model for bringing about systemic change in schools using data." -Susan Norris Huss, Bowling Green State University
