VTSCA's is currently planning a virtual Day on the Hill for winter or spring 2021 in place of our postponed in-person Day on the Hill from Spring 2020. Please see the information regarding our previously planned Day on the Hill below. New and updated information will be forthcoming.

Participants will have the opportunity to meet with members of the House and Senate Education Committees to share their experiences and to advocate for issues impacting school counselors and students. Attendees will receive training on how to advocate for the school counseling profession and their students with administrators, school boards and policy makers.  Additionally, you will have the opportunity to set up appointments to meet with your local representatives.

Issues and Priorities:

  • Time: 20% Program Planning & 80% Direct & Indirect Service

  • Student health and wellness & increasing needs

  • Access to comprehensive K-12 school counseling programming

  • Post-Secondary Readiness

Once finalized, please consider joining us for this wonderful opportunity to have our voices heard and contribute to positive change

One question that sometimes comes up from members is how can I be supportive of VTSCA but I am concerned I do not have the time to be actively involved?  Below are action steps you can take to support the school counseling profession in Vermont and at the Federal level and it should all take less that 5 minutes.

Federal level: Read about the Elementary & Secondary School Counseling Act then Support the Elementary & Secondary School Counseling Act.
