Room: Acacia
Topic: Comprehensive School Counseling Program Design & Management
Presenter(s): Kristen Ascencao; Elias Zambrano; Gail Roaten

The Texas Association for Counselor Educators & Supervisors (TACES) is proud to present a session specifically for Counseling Supervisors! Does your staff understand their professional boundaries and responsibilities? Does your school counseling program embody all four service delivery components of guidance curriculum, responsive services, individual student planning, and system support? Does your school counseling staff have a firm understanding of the ten domains of the Texas Evaluation Model for Professional School Counselors (TEMPSC, 3rd edition)? Does your school system have a plan for SB 179? Join us as we investigate the three 'T's' - Time (SB 179), TEMPSC 3rd edition, and the Texas Model for Comprehensive School Counseling Programs. These three documents are shaping the school counseling profession and helping to promote a comprehensive school counseling program. During this session, we will learn how to use the three 'T's' to promote growth in your school counselors by helping them understand their professional boundaries and responsibilities.

Join us for an institute that will show you a framework for implementing universal and intensive services for your students by leveraging existing supports.
