The Annual Administrative Conference (formerly the Principal - Counselor Agreement) is a major part of advocating for your school counseling program. Advocacy starts at your site!
According to ASCA, “the annual administrative conference is a formal discussion between school counselors and the administrator in charge of the school counseling program.” It allows the counselor to communicate their goals, priorities, use of time, as well as important dates for events like advisory council meetings. In addition, it allows for a discussion about the counselor’s role on campus as a staff member. What committees will you be serving on? How will you handle a part of the duty schedule? Do you have a budget for your program?
And, personally, I always use this time to request funds to attend the annual AzSCA conference.
