BATON ROUGE - The Department of Education recently launched the online Counselor Support Toolbox as part of the larger Classroom Support Toolbox for educators and districts that were launched earlier this year.

These tools, developed for counselors by counselors, was created with the goal of providing Louisiana professional school counselors with concrete resources to support their work and a venue to collaborate and grow in their practice.

This toolbox, like the other resources in the Classroom Support Toolbox, will continue to evolve and grow as counselors provide additional feedback and new materials. Organized around the elements of the Compass rubric, the toolbox provides professional school counselors with support on the core elements of their work. The toolbox also provides example Student Learning Targets (SLTs) to support the goal setting process.

The Department will host webinars for professional school counselors at the days/times below to introduce the resource available in the toolbox, answer any questions, or field suggestions for improvements.
