California is a big state with the largest number of school counselors in the nation (10,000+) across 58 counties. While there is state leadership from the California Association of School Counselors (CASC) there is also another team working hard for school counselors. In late 2017, county leaders from Orange County, Imperial, San Diego, Riverside, and Shasta collaborated with Hatching Results, LLC and CDE representatives to form an alliance: County Offices of Education Leadership for School Counseling (COELSC). The purpose of COELSC is to provide coordination, collaboration, leadership, and support to school counselors and school counseling programs at the county level. We are happy to say that in the past few years this leadership has expanded to include most of our county offices of education. Additionally, the collaboration is rich with leaders who represent CASC, CDE and Hatching Results, LLC.
School counselors are encouraged to be members of their state and national associations and to seek professional learning in order to best serve all students and stakeholders as well as to enhance their leadership and advocacy skills.
