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.
