Investing in Teachers Training Component - -- Workshops for School Counselors



School Counselor Training 2012-13

Background: Educators are tasked with ensuring all students are College, Career and Life Ready. As such, there is a need for middle and high school counselors to have a clear understanding of South Dakota’s current workforce priorities, labor market needs, postsecondary options and available resources to help adequately prepare students for life after high school. This two year project begins during the 2012-2013 school year.

The dates and locations for Year 2 are:
Sept. 27 & 28 – Rapid City
Oct. 18 & 19 – Mitchell
Nov. 1 & 2 – Watertown
Dec. 6 & 7 – Sioux Falls
Jan. 24 & 25, 2014 – Sioux Falls

Date and location for Year 1 (for new counselors or for those that missed the training in 2012-13):
October 18 & 19 – Mitchell

All trainings will be starting Friday after 4:30 p.m. and will end around 4 p.m. on Saturday.

*Stipends available to practicing public school counselors. Grad credit is available.

Goals
After participating in the 2-year professional development series, school counselors will:
• Clearly describe current workforce and labor market needs in the state
• Accurately identify the strengths and options for military, technical institute, university or other advanced education in South Dakota
• Have the ability to productively facilitate students and their families through the career development process and through transitions beyond high school
