Resources for Iowa School Counselors
There is no such thing as an average day for school counselors. Each day presents itself with unique challenges and opportunities and we can make the best of each if we have the right tools in our toolbox. In our resources section we have identified organizations, resource materials, activities, and standards that can help transform random acts of guidance into a comprehensive school counseling program.
Resources have been organized by level as well as the tenants of a comprehensive school-counseling program. Click a topic or link below to review that section. If you know of a resource that you find helpful, and it's not listed here, please submit the recommendation and we will review it and add it to the list of resources.
Networking is often the best resource. Make sure you are registered for the ISCORE List-Serv. Through this friendly email list-serv you can ask questions to the subscriber list and get results quickly. You can also monitor other conversations as they happen and connect with peers around the state.
