CHAMP CAMP-IT’S TIME TO GET READY FOR THE NEW REGULATIONS
This summer NYSSCA is planning a full day training called CHAMP CAMP (Counselors Helping Achieve Mastery Program) to be held in four locations around New York State specifically designed to help school counselors implement the new regulation requirements. We are planning 4 locations and dates:
Mercy College, Dobbs Ferry, July 24th
Glens Falls HS, Glens Falls, July 26th
OCM BOCES, Liverpool, July 31st
Orchard Park HS, Orchard Park, August 2nd
The format will provide targeted training for both school counselors who are unfamiliar with the ASCA National Model as well as those who are already well-versed. Likewise, the program will be relevant for districts who have already begun updating their program and for those who have not yet planned how to update. Cost for this program will be minimal: $49 for NYSSCA members, $99 for non-members (includes NYSSCA membership) and includes lunch. The program will begin at 8:00 am and conclude by 4:00 pm.
NYSSBA Webinar available to NYSSCA Members:
On June 17th, 2015, the NYS School Boards Association hosted a webinar: Big Changes for School Guidance Counseling – The Impact of NewRegulations, presented by Gloria Jean, NYSSCA President 2014-15. During this webinar, Gloria provided an overview of the proposed NYSED Commissioner’s Regulation changes regarding Part 100.2(j) Guidance Programs as well as the American School Counselor Association National Model framework the revision is based on.
