Legislative Day

CANCELLED - June 21, 2018

We regret to inform you that, due to last-minute changes in the legislative schedule, we will have to cancel tomorrow’s School Counselors Association Legislative Day. Leadership informed The Policy Group this morning that the House has decided to hold a no-vote session on Thursday, which means many of the members will be going home tonight until next week. 

NCSCA and the Policy Group are looking forward to picking up in the long session and getting in early with legislators to advocate for the alignment of school counselor pay scale with that of other master's level professionals and continuing to support the recommended ratio of 250 students to one counselor. 

We apologize for this massive inconvenience, and hope that everyone is able to readjust their travel plans.



 

NCSCA Legislative Day:

The North Carolina School Counselor Association works to provide a voice for school counselors across the state.  Legislative Day will give you an opportunity to assist with that process!

At this event, we promote issues that are of concern to school counselors and the students we serve. Our meetings with members of the N.C. General Assembly are an opportunity to educate our state senators and representatives about the range of responsibilities that school counselors have.

Every year, NCSCA members help to preserve school counselor positions, protect school counselors' time, reduce student to counselor ratios, and support a salary scale increase and testing coordinator positions when funding becomes available.

Printed copies of the booklet will be distributed at our opening session on Legislative Day.
