Public Comment for Proposed Revision of the Kansas School Counseling Standards

The Kansas State Department of Education is seeking public input on the proposed revision of the Kansas Curricular School Counseling Standards. The original Standards were adopted by the State Board in 2006. These Standards are designed to assist educators as they provide school counseling services for their students. A committee of 23 Kansas educators provided input, research, expertise and content mastery as they reviewed and ultimately revised the 2006 Standards. The committee reviewed other state standards, the American School Counselor Association Mindsets and Behaviors, the Kansas Social-Emotional Character Development Standards (SECD) and the Kansas College and Career Readiness Standards. The committee met 9 different times over a year and a half period.

Public comment is welcomed until Friday, April 10th. Please submit your comments on the KSDE website at http://events.ksde.org/Default.aspx?tabid=737

Re: Public comment on the revised Ks. Curricular School Counseling Standards

I have found the standards to be appropriate for middle school students. The standards ensure someone will be talking to students about these issues.Teachers do not feel comfortable or prepared to discuss these issues.

The Standards seem appropriate. Sometimes I think there is too much revising with too little change, but I actually do think these are a step forward.

Re: Public comment on the revised Ks. Curricular School Counseling Standards

As a parent and educator, I find the standards to be both challenging and as the world becomes smaller, students need these challenging standards to remain competitive in the U.S. I have noticed a dramatic raise in children's ability to problem solve and critically think. Students need to think beyond multiple choice. This increased rigor in the classroom develops students higher level thinking skills, something we all want for our kids. Also, in a time where the state is short of money, adopting the Common Core State standards will save money versus the millions we put into new curriculum, new textbooks for districts, and new state tests development. My daughter will be prepared to go out into the world with the Common Core Standards; otherwise, she will be missing out on critical learning components.

Re: Public comment on the revised Ks. Curricular School Counseling Standards

Academic Development Standard 1 has a Benchmark 2 with no knowledge based indicators.
Social and Emotional Standard 3 has a benchmark 2 not listed in your overview of Social and Emotional.

Standard 3 6-8th grade, Academic Domain, Benchmark 2 Knowledge-Based Indicator 5.... demonstrates the ability to balance school, home, and career. I do not feel this is grade level appropriate. Perhaps it should read recognizes the need to balance school, home, and career. They do not have a career at this point for me to asses their ability to balance it with school and home. However, they could explain why it is important.

Re: Public comment on the revised Ks. Curricular School Counseling Standards

I would like to see either in the final draft or in the supporting documents the citations for the development of these standards including the crosswalk with the ASCA, 3rd Ed. This would enable districts and buildings to better justify the changes in their programs and position them to be recognized by ASCA as a model program.
