Season Greetings!  Only weeks left till the start of 2017.  Here’s what Dr. Suess has to say about that….

This will be a hands-on professional development.  We will be focusing on the things we have learned from the Guidance Team Self Study and transitioning the document from Dropbox to Google; hear from practitioners in the field over successful strategies/goals, provide networking and consulting time, gain your input on Guidancefest and how to enhance that experience for our 10-year Guidancefest anniversary tour; and discuss the role of advisory committee.  There is no cost for these workshops.  Registration can be found at:


You may have heard talk about a Carl Perkins School Counseling and Guidance Services PLN.  We recently held a workshop designed for the PLN.  This PLN group and corresponding professional development is customized for those tech centers and comprehensive schools spending their Carl Perkins funding on providing School Counseling and Career Guidance Services to students. Our focus will be on the whole school counseling and guidance services offered for students. While we intend for our focus to serve schools utilizing funds in this manner, we welcome any school counselor, career advisor, or school staff member who desires to participate. If you would like to find out more about this PLN, contact Erica Harris at 405.743.5164 or email at
