Indiana Comprehensive School
Counseling Institute: 2022 Cohort
Carrying the Torch to Student Success:
Meet bronze, silver, and gold level requirements!
Are you interested in any of the following?
- Having a school counseling program that’s data-driven?
- Increasing satisfaction with your school counseling job?
- Increasing student proficiency rates in ELA and Math?
- Spending more time with students and less time on non-counseling duties?
If you answered yes to any of the above, it’s time to start developing a comprehensive school counseling program and participation in this series with a group of colleagues is one way to do it!
Ensure your school counseling program is data-driven & student outcomes-based, while being among the first group of school counselors in the state to meet requirements for Indiana’s new Carrying the Torch to Student Success!
Be a part of the inaugural cohort!
The Indiana Department of Education and Indiana School Counselor Association will be launching Carrying the Torch (CTT) to Student Success: Indiana’s Comprehensive School Counseling Program in November, 2022!
School Counselors across the state of Indiana will have the opportunity to develop a comprehensive school counseling program at their own pace using a free online platform offered by Inspire Success. Counselors will be able to select to participate in bronze, silver, or gold star levels to meet requirements for CTT.
