We are extending an invitation to all school counselors and program staff to join the OSPI Comprehensive Guidance and Counseling (CGCP) Support ListServ.
As information is received that is important for counselors to know in order to do the best job possible in serving students, we are posting that information to the listserv. It is a faster vehicle to get out the information than the CGCP News, which is published every two months (more in depth information may often appear in the News).
Join the CGCP Support ListServ
Articles posted since the inception of the listserv are archived by month. You can also post questions to staff.
Comprehensive guidance and counseling programs (CGCPs) are vital in providing services and support to assist all students be successful academically, socially, and with critical career development outcomes, including transitions to postsecondary education and career training. A CGCP framework makes use of the three-tiered Response to Intervention (RTI) model that frames resources and tools for guidance and counseling programs.
