Tahoe-Truckee schools to recognize ‘Week of the School Counselor’
January 25, 2016
TAHOE-TRUCKEE, Calif. — School counselors are an integral part of the academic team at Tahoe Truckee Unified School District, and the district plans to recognize counselors during the National School Counseling Week, Feb. 1-5.
Counselors work with educators to help students realize their potential and set healthy, optimistic goals for themselves.
Corine Harvey, TTUSD's Executive Director of Student Services, shared, "Our counselors advocate for students and are actively engaged in helping students explore their abilities, strengths, interests, and provide multiple opportunities for social, educational and career development. They make a big difference in our students' academic success."
Based on the tremendous impact school counselors have in helping students achieve success, and as part of National School Counseling Week, TTUSD's Board of Education will be adopting a resolution to recognize Feb. 1-5, 2016, as the Week of the School Counselor.
"The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for our school counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, which is a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century," said TTUSD Superintendent Rob Leri.
