Greeting School Counselors,

The intent of this email is to inform you and/or address any questions you have concerning the AI/AN professional development and training. Please share this email with your colleagues not on the counselor listserv and save this email for future reference. Sorry for the length of this email.

Attached you will find the AI/AN application for level one. There are 4 components to level one (see attachment #2) and you must complete all 4 areas in order to submit your application. The third attachment is the guiding questions for the Gary Howard book, "You can't teach what you don't know". The reading and guiding questions are 1c of the AI/AN level one training and professional development. You will ONLY submit these guiding questions (1c) with the entire level one application, not separate from the completion of all 4 components of level one. Again, only send in your guiding question responses when you complete all of level one( 1a,1b,1c,1d).

If you have submitted the guiding questions without the entire level one completion and application, please keep a copy for your records so you will be able to resubmit this with your entire application after completing all 4 areas. USOE will not keep on file your submitted guiding question responses for any future reference.

The AI/AN level one training and PD application will be accepted between the dates of August 1 and September 30th  each year. You must submit the application in hard copy form to:

Secondary Comprehensive Counseling and Guidance Specialist
250 East 500 South
PO Box 144200
Salt Lake City, UT 84114-4200

You must include any documentation you have for any of the 4 areas, especially if you are using REACH training for 1c.
Your application will be reviewed by the CCGP AI/AN/Multicultural Global Citizenship committee and you will receive notification or certification after October 31th.

As for the training and professional development for the 2012-13 school year, we have scheduled 1d for Tuesday, November 8 - SLC SD CTE Center. We will continue to offer 1a and 1b during summer conference.

The release of registration for the training for 1d on November 8th will be Friday, September 14th . You will receive notification through the school counselor listserv with instruction on how to register. Only individuals who have completed 1a, 1b, and 1c qualify to register for 1d.

If you have questions regarding record of any previous AI/AN training you have attended, whether you have attended this training at the district level or summer conference, you can find your records in the ONTRACK system. You are able to print your own transcript and proof of participation of your training.

PLEASE remember, the AI/AN training and professional development is only ONE indicator out of 7 indicators in STANDARD II or the new STANDARD 12, of your performance review. Indicator 2b states: "Counselors are aware of and working towards fulfilling the components of the AI/AN training and professional development for school counselors." It says nothing about completion of level one at this point in time.

I appreciate your time and the work that you do. School Counselors make a difference in the lives of ALL students.

Comprehensive Counseling and Guidance Program Specialist
